A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates an Internet site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such programs can be used for both static and dynamic websites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform significantly faster without using additional system resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a site will need significantly less resources to function since the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your websites irrespective of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
If you buy one of our cloud web hosting
packages, you will have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could considerably speed up any website since it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish functions way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used primarily for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the website will connect to its database way less, the overall server load will be reduced considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications such as chats and booking Internet sites since it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated server
packages will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators because it can accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the web server won't need to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for sites designed with programs like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate an Internet site several times because it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in small parts as soon as a user enters anything, so it operates considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit sizeable parts of info which need time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included in our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in smaller portions as the end user is entering it, thus it functions faster than other platforms that wait for the users to input one big piece of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same guest opens the same website again, which could speed any Internet site several times due to the fact that Varnish operates faster than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it's appropriate for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your web server since it shall lower the amount of database queries which your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan you pick, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the web server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every website that uses an API or a database - as an example, any website created with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can boost the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and because it does that faster than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to surf your website at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will enable you to create booking websites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the data in little pieces as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of data, which makes Node.js much quicker than similar applications.
