Find out what exactly web accelerators are and in what way you are able to make the most of them to supercharge your website’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is an application which quickens a site, typically by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the server, hence improving the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not simply will a website work better, but the server load shall also decline, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to accelerate any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you'd like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
We offer three of the most popular web accelerators with our shared web hosting solutions and based on what plan you shall select when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it can be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the web server each time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You'll be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators as it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, consequently the hosting server shall not need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is suitable for Internet sites developed with programs such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a site several times as it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in little pieces the instant a user types anything, as a result it functions much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit massive chunks of info which require time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn the event that you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included within our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is employed to develop scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the information in small bits as the end user is entering it, thus it works quicker than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one massive piece of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which could speed any Internet site several times since Varnish works more quickly than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your hosting server as it shall decrease the amount of database queries that your sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn the event that you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for speeding up your Internet sites. Memcached can lessen the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic websites developed with WordPress, Joomla™ and similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be used to accelerate any kind of site since it delivers the cached content much faster than the hosting server each time a website visitor opens the same page again. You could employ Node.js for online programs which require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking sites. Unlike other platforms that await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it works much faster and more effectively. All dedicated server packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
