A web accelerator is an application that accelerates an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the general case such apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the server, therefore boosting the performance of a site noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not only will a website operate better, but the server load will also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of site. In comparison, most hosting firms don't offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
If you get one of our shared hosting plans, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could tremendously accelerate any Internet site as it caches the web pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish operates considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall raise significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven websites. Because the website shall connect to its database way less, the overall web server load shall be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps like chats and booking Internet sites because it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the package you select, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that web page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load created by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated within our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in little portions as the user is entering it, as a result it works much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to input one sizeable piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same page again, which can speed any Internet site several times as Varnish operates faster than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is suitable for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your web server as it shall reduce the amount of database queries which your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the plan you select, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries which need to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any kind of website by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the very same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that way quicker than the web server, the website visitor will be able to surf your site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will allow you to create booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the info in tiny pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big chunk of information, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar applications.
