A web accelerator is a software which speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, hence improving the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you want to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
In case you host your sites inside a web hosting
account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that works on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server
account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database server won't need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that page is opened again by the same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will decrease the load created by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you will be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches pages the first time a guest opens them and delivers them when that guest opens them again, so the hosting server shall not have to perform any action. As Varnish operates much quicker than any server, an Internet site using this accelerator shall function several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating scalable web apps. Any information on a website that employs Node.js is processed right away, making it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, browser games, etcetera.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the plan that you select, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - for instance, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any type of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and given that it does that much quicker than the hosting server, the website visitor shall be able to look through your Internet site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will permit you to build booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in tiny portions as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
