What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do to increase your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a program that speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the server, thus increasing the performance of a site significantly. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a website work better, but the server load will also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to increase the speed of any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most website hosting companies do not provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators along with our website hosting packages and depending on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be used for any kind of site. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You shall be able to select the amount of memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia hosting CP.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators since it can accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, consequently the web server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for sites developed with applications such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate an Internet site several times as it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in little pieces the moment a user types something, as a result it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit large parts of information which need time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators via your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn the event that you obtain a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are included inside our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the information in smaller bits as the end user is entering it, therefore it works quicker than other platforms which wait for the users to input one massive part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same website visitor opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any website several times because Varnish operates a lot quicker than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your server as it'll reduced the amount of database queries that your sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIf you order a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the server will reduce since there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the performance of a site using this accelerator can increase up to 300%.
