A web accelerator is a piece of software that accelerates a website usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the server. Such apps could be used for both static and dynamic sites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without using extra system resources. On the contrary, this type of a website will require a lesser amount of resources to operate as the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the server. Contrary to many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer three different ones that'll permit you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account from our firm, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can reduce the load of such Internet sites drastically. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can raise the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the server and not within the visitor's web browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where loads of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process the same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case this page is opened again by the very same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will lessen the load generated by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can substantially minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, therefore it minimizes the number of database queries which the web server has to handle. Node.js will allow you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the information is handled faster and in small parts. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Since it functions faster than any web server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
