A web accelerator is an application that speeds up a website, usually by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the web server, therefore increasing the performance of a site significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load will also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of website. In comparison, most hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you would like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans feature three web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the websites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly boost the performance of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the website visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications such as booking sites. Based on the hosting package you pick, these 3 applications might already be included or could be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by a few web hosting providers, including ours, and they could raise the speed of your web programs considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server won't have to process the very same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. In case that web page is opened again by the same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load produced by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS
All virtual private servers which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them in case that visitor opens them again, hence the hosting server shall not need to perform any action. Because Varnish works faster than any web server, a website employing this accelerator shall work several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven programs that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building scalable web programs. Any information on a website that uses Node.js is processed instantly, making it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, and so forth.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a dedicated server from our company and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data instantly as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase nearly 300%.
