A web accelerator is an application that accelerates an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the common case such programs cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the web server, therefore increasing the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not only will a website function better, but the server load will also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web apps if you would like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
When you host your sites inside a shared website hosting
account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to choose 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 easily lessen the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the web server, so it can easily raise the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the web server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where lots of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you choose - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it could easily boost any script-driven Internet site. You may use it for any site designed with WordPress or Joomla™
, for example. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that can be used for any kind of Internet sites. Depending on the content, it can improve the performance of an Internet site close to 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to build scalable Internet applications that process information in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike similar platforms, it processes data continuously and in small parts instead of waiting for the user to submit one massive chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any Internet site through the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them shall work and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
which are ordered with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server shall also feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites because it caches database responses, thus lowering the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an effective platform for developing web programs for example booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is performed by processing smaller pieces of information as soon any user enters anything on the webpage. By comparison, other platforms await users to enter plenty of information before they process it, thus they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole web pages and provides them instead of the server at a much faster rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any kind of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you purchase a dedicated server
from our company and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than 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 work faster, but also the load on the server will decline as there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
