A web accelerator is a program that accelerates a site, typically by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the server, therefore increasing the performance of a website greatly. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a website work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to speed up any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting companies don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites inside a shared hosting account from our firm, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the web server and not in the visitor's web browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting package which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include 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 in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a great choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database hosting server will not have to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case this page is opened again by the same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator shall lessen the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel 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 VPS Servers
All VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will receive several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them if that visitor opens them again, therefore the server will not need to perform any action. As Varnish operates much faster than any server, an Internet site using this accelerator shall work several times swifter. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven applications which store their content in a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web applications. Any data on a site that uses Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a great choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain a dedicated server from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the web server will decline as there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole websites once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase nearly 300%.
