Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do in order to improve your website's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software that quickens an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the server, as a consequence increasing the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site work better, but the server load will also decline, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to speed up any type of website. In comparison, most hosting firms don't provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
When you get one of our shared website hosting packages, you'll have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could significantly accelerate any site as it caches the web pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will grow substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven websites. Considering that the Internet site will connect to its database way less, the overall server load will be reduced notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking Internet sites since it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the package you pick, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersIn case you choose one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the guest opens them again close to 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the server doesn't need to process each and every request, that makes it ideal for database-driven Internet sites, for example ones designed with Joomla™ or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web apps that operate in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes every bit of info the moment the user enters it as opposed to waiting for big pieces of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated packages shall enable you to choose how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and how much memory they will use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersAll VPS servers that are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the web server shall not need to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish operates faster than any hosting server, an Internet site using this accelerator will work several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven apps that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web programs. Any info on an Internet site which uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, browser games, and so forth.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached can lessen the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic Internet sites developed with WordPress, Joomla™ and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new visitor opens them. It can be employed to speed up any sort of site as it provides the cached content much quicker than the web server any time a visitor opens the same page again. You could employ Node.js for online apps that demand real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information little by little as the user fills every box, so it operates much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
