Learn what precisely web accelerators are and how it is possible to make the most of them to supercharge your web site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up a website typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such apps can be employed for both static and dynamic websites as there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform significantly faster without using additional resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a site will need significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the hosting server. In contrast to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your sites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
When you host your sites inside a shared website hosting account from our company, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it could increase the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that works on the server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It's employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingYou shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla™. This way, the database server won't have to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a site. If that page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will minimize the load produced by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingIf you choose your virtual private server to be incorporated with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they are visited and provides them each and every time the same person visits them again, which can accelerate any kind of Internet site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script applications like Joomla™ and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database web server shall not need to process the same page every time visitors open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time apps such as online games and chats. It operates much quicker than similar platforms since it processes the data in small bits all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a sizable piece of data that will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and include several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These three web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can greatly decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, therefore it minimizes the amount of database queries the web server has to tackle. Node.js will permit you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information the instant the end user enters it, so all the info is taken care of swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of sites. As it operates quicker than any server, it can speed up a site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators on the market.
