A web accelerator is a program which quickens a website, usually by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the server, thus increasing the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a website function better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to accelerate any type of website. In comparison, most hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web applications if you'd like to employ this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you buy one of our cloud web hosting
solutions, you'll have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could greatly speed up any Internet site because it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall grow considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven websites. Because the website shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications including chats and booking sites since it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you pick one of our semi-dedicated server
plans, you shall be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches websites the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the site visitor opens them again up to 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the server doesn't need to process every request, that makes it ideal for database-driven sites, such as ones built with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web apps which operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of information the moment the user enters it as opposed to waiting for massive pieces of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated plans shall allow you to choose how many instances of every accelerator will work at a time and the amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated inside our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in small bits as the end user is entering it, therefore it operates quicker than other platforms that wait for the users to input one big bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any site several times because Varnish operates more quickly than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your web server as it shall lower the amount of database queries your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire a dedicated server
from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much 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 site speed up, but also the load on the web server will decline since there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the performance of a site using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
