A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up an Internet site generally by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such applications could be used for both static and dynamic websites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform considerably faster without employing extra resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will demand a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the hosting server. Unlike many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your websites regardless of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting solutions come with 3 web accelerators that you could use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably improve the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and provides them to the website visitors considerably faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs for example booking websites. With respect to the hosting plan you select, these 3 programs could already be included or could be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of web hosting providers, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web applications considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a great option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process the exact same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator will minimize the load generated by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a big piece of info, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers which are acquired with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also come with a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would be determined by the package that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, thus decreasing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It can be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing web applications such as booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a server is performed by processing little bits of information as soon any user enters anything on the website. By comparison, other platforms await customers to input a lot of data before they process it, thus they work slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the web server at a faster rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any kind of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In the event that you order a dedicated server from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information instantly as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the web server will minimize since there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any web server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
