Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to boost your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the general case such apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the server, thus increasing the performance of a site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting businesses don't provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators together with our shared hosting packages and based upon what plan you will select when you sign up, they might already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be employed for any sort of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it works in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You will be able to select how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators as it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server will not need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is ideal for websites developed with applications like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any type of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can accelerate an Internet site several times as it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes information in small pieces the moment a user types something, therefore it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit massive parts of data that need time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators using your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingWe offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server shall also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, as a result decreasing the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It may be used for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™. Node.js is an effective platform for developing web applications including booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is performed by processing small parts of data as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms await users to input loads of information before they process it, as a result they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole pages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a considerably faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any sort of Internet site.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting CP. These three web accelerators come with several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can drastically decrease the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites as it caches database responses, so it lessens the number of database queries which the web server has to handle. Node.js shall allow you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information as soon as the end user enters it, so all the info is taken care of quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them every time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. As it works faster than any hosting server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
