A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such programs could be employed for both static and dynamic sites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site will perform noticeably faster without using additional resources. Just the opposite, this type of a website will require much less resources to function as the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the server. Contrary to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your sites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a web hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can boost the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which functions on the web server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting package that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated server solutions shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can easily speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for websites developed with programs such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can speed up a website several times because it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in little bits the moment a user enters something, therefore it operates considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit large parts of data that require time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included within our solutions by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the information in smaller bits as the end user is entering it, thus it functions quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one sizeable piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which could speed any site several times because Varnish functions a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your hosting server since it'll lower the number of database queries that your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can greatly reduce the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, so it lessens the number of database queries the hosting server has to tackle. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes data as soon as the end user enters it, so all the info is managed swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. Because it works faster than any web server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators out there.
