A web accelerator is a server-side app which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the machine. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to enhance the performance of any type of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our web hosting solutions, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly speed up any website because it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall grow noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Because the website shall connect to its database much less, the overall server load shall be reduced significantly. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking sites as it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Based on the package you pick, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a great option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server won't have to process the exact same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that web page is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web applications such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big 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 every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In the event that you get a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the user enters it, which makes it faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
