A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such apps may be employed for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform noticeably faster without using more system resources. Quite the opposite, such a website will need a lesser amount of resources to operate since the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the hosting server. In contrast to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your sites irrespective of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans include three web accelerators that you could employ depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously improve the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and provides them to the site visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. Based on the hosting solution you pick, these 3 programs might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are offered only by a few Internet hosting service providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web apps drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the exact same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens an Internet site. In case that page is opened again by the very same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator will decrease the load produced by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to build scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP 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
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server will also come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would depend on the plan that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites as it caches database responses, as a result decreasing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It may be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating web apps like booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is performed by processing smaller bits of data as soon any user enters anything on the website. In contrast, other platforms wait for users to input a whole lot of data before they process it, therefore they function slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the server at a considerably quicker rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached can easily minimize the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new visitor opens them. It can be employed to accelerate any kind of Internet site since it delivers the cached content much faster than the web server each time a website visitor opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online programs which require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills each and every box, so it operates considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
