A web accelerator is a server-side app which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of companies supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any kind of site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
packages feature 3 web accelerators which you will be able to employ depending on the sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably improve the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the site visitors much faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as booking sites. With respect to the Internet hosting solution you select, these three apps might already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to select 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 hosting providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web applications significantly.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated server
solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators as it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, consequently the web server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for Internet sites developed with programs like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up an Internet site several times since it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes data in small pieces the instant a user enters anything, so it operates faster than similar platforms where users submit big parts of info that need time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them if that visitor opens them again, hence the web server will not need to perform any action. Since Varnish works much faster than any server, a site employing this accelerator will operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven applications that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for creating scalable web apps. Any information on a site which employs Node.js is processed right away, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package deal you pick, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the web server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be taken care of because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and given that it does that faster than the server, the website visitor will be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. That is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will allow you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in small pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
