Understand what precisely web accelerators are and in what ways you'll be able to take full advantage of them to enhance your website’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up a website usually by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such programs could be used for both static and dynamic sites because there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform considerably faster without employing more resources. On the contrary, this type of a site will require significantly less resources to work since the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the server. Unlike many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to speed up your websites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
packages come with three web accelerators that you can employ depending on the websites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably boost the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the website visitors considerably quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. With respect to the hosting package you pick, these 3 apps could already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few hosting companies, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web applications considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most effective web accelerators out there. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can easily increase the speed of any script-driven site. You could use it for any Internet site developed with WordPress or Joomla™
, for example. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that may be used for any sort of Internet sites. With regards to the content, it can increase the performance of an Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to develop scalable Internet apps which process data in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes information consistently and in small portions instead of waiting for the user to submit one massive piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any site from the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
In case you obtain a virtual private server
with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated within our solutions by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in small portions as the end user is entering it, thus it operates quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one sizeable piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same guest opens the same page again, which can easily speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish operates more quickly than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can easily lessen the load on your hosting server as it will lower the amount of database queries that your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain a dedicated server
from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the server will minimize because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase as much as 300%.
