What exactly do web accelerators do? What could you do to boost your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up a website usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such programs could be used for both static and dynamic sites since there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform significantly faster without employing additional system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will need significantly less resources to work as the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can reduce the load of such sites considerably. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the hosting server, so it could boost the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not within the visitor's web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersOur semi-dedicated server plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most effective web accelerators out there. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, so it can speed up any script-driven Internet site. You may 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 can be used for any sort of Internet sites. With regards to the content, it can boost the performance of an Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an innovative system used to develop scalable Internet programs that process information in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike comparable platforms, it processes information consistently and in small pieces as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one large piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any Internet site via the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they'll employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersWe provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your hosting server will also feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would be determined by the plan that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, as a result lowering the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla™. Node.js is a powerful platform for building web apps like booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is performed by processing smaller bits of information as soon any user enters anything on the website. By comparison, other platforms await customers to input a considerable amount of information before they process it, thus they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole web pages and delivers them instead of the hosting server at a considerably quicker rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of Internet site.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn the event that you get a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decline as there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire websites once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
