A web accelerator is a server-side app that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the web server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting solutions include three web accelerators which you could employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly boost the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors way quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs including booking sites. With respect to the hosting solution you select, these three programs may already be included or may be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of Internet hosting companies, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web applications considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is a great option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server will not need to process exactly the same request if many users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load created by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server will also include a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would depend on the package that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, consequently lowering the number of queries a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing web apps for example booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is carried out by processing little pieces of information as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. In comparison, other platforms wait for users to input plenty of data before they process it, consequently they work slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole web pages and delivers them instead of the server at a much faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any sort of website. Memcached can drastically reduce the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the amount of database queries that the hosting server has to take care of. Node.js shall permit you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the moment the user enters it, so all the information is taken care of faster and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them each time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of sites. Since it works quicker than any server, it can speed up a website at least several times and as a result, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
