Find out what precisely web accelerators are and the way it is possible to take full advantage of them to boost your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is a software which accelerates an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the server, therefore boosting the performance of a site noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting firms don't provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
If you buy one of our hosting
plans, you shall have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly speed up any Internet site as it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish works considerably faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Since the website shall connect to its database way less, the overall web server load will be minimized notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking websites because it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators out there. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can boost any script-driven website. You can use it for any website created with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that could be employed for any type of Internet sites. Depending on the content, it can easily increase the performance of a site as much as 300%. Node.js is an innovative system employed to create scalable Internet programs that process info in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes info consistently and in small pieces rather than waiting for the user to submit one large chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any site through the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of each of them will work and how much memory they shall employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server shall also feature a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would depend on the plan that you pick. Memcached is used for script-driven websites as it caches database responses, thus reducing the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web applications such as booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is carried out by processing small pieces of data as soon any user inputs anything on the site. In comparison, other platforms wait for users to input loads of data before they process it, thus they function slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole pages and delivers them instead of the server at a considerably faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to lessen the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic websites developed with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be used to accelerate any sort of site as it provides the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server any time a customer opens the same site again. You could employ Node.js for online applications that require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms which wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the data little by little as the user fills each box, so it works faster and more effectively. All dedicated server
solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
