A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer just one, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any type of site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages feature three web accelerators which you could employ depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the visitors faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps including booking websites. Depending on the web hosting solution you select, these three apps could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of hosting companies, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web applications drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server if the site visitor opens them again nearly 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the web server doesn't have to process each and every request, which makes it ideal for database-driven websites, for instance ones built with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web applications that work in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each and every bit of data the instant the user enters it rather than waiting for massive portions of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated solutions will enable you to choose how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and the amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you choose your VPS server to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they are visited and delivers them each and every time the same person visits them again, which shall speed up any kind of site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications for instance Joomla and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, as a result the database hosting server shall not need to process the same website each time guests open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time apps for example online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms because it processes the data in tiny bits all the time and does not wait for users to submit a sizable piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and include several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any sort of site. Memcached can significantly lessen the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, thus it decreases the number of database queries which the web server has to take care of. Node.js shall enable you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the instant the end user enters it, so all the data is handled quicker and in small portions. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Because it works quicker than any server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
