Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do to improve your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software which accelerates an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the hosting server, hence boosting the performance of a site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not only will a website work better, but the server load will also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of website. In comparison, most hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or provide one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators with our cloud web hosting services and depending on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they might already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be employed for any type of site. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the hosting server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You'll be able to select just how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia hosting CP.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can effortlessly speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the server shall not need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is ideal for sites built with apps like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up an Internet site several times since it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller parts the instant a user types anything, therefore it works faster than similar platforms in which users submit big parts of information which require time to be processed. You could pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators through your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIf you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are incorporated in 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 Internet sites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in little pieces as the end user is entering it, thus it functions more quickly than other platforms that wait for the end users to input one large bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same site visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish works a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your hosting server as it shall decrease the number of database queries your Internet sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIf you acquire a dedicated server from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away 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 Internet site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce since there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole pages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
