A web accelerator is a program that speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the web server, therefore boosting the performance of a site drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will a site work better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps if you want to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our cloud web hosting
plans, you will have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably accelerate any Internet site as it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish functions noticeably faster than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will improve noticeably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load will be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs including chats and booking Internet sites since it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose one of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 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 server if the guest opens them again nearly 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the web server does not have to process each and every request, that makes it suitable for database-driven Internet sites, for example ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web programs that function in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes every bit of data the instant the user types it instead of waiting for sizeable pieces of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated packages shall enable you to choose how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and just how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server
with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are incorporated in our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in little pieces as the user is entering it, thus it operates faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one big bit of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same site visitor opens the same webpage again, which can certainly speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish works faster than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it's appropriate for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can easily reduce the load on your hosting server because it will lower the amount of database queries that your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you obtain a dedicated server
from our firm and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the client enters it, which makes it faster than very similar 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 minimize as there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the performance of a website using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
