A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up a website typically by caching content and providing 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 employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform significantly faster without using extra resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will need much less resources to work since the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the hosting server. Unlike many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites inside a shared web hosting account from us, you will have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could decrease the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can raise the loading speed of any Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that operates on the server and not within the visitor's web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting package which you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server won't need to process exactly the same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. In case this page is opened again by the same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will minimize the load created by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your sites. Memcached will be able to minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic websites created with WordPress, Joomla and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole webpages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It could be employed to accelerate any kind of site because it provides the cached content much faster than the web server every time a visitor opens the same page again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online apps that require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills every box, so it works faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
