What precisely do web accelerators do? What could you do to be able to boost your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of Internet site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
solutions include 3 web accelerators which you could use depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably enhance the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the site visitors considerably faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as booking websites. Based on the Internet hosting package you pick, these three applications might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are provided only by a few hosting service providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web apps drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated server
account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a great choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database hosting server shall not have to process the same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If this webpage is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your websites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
which are integrated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will have several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a guest opens them and provides them when that guest opens them again, so the web server will not have to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish works faster than any server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven apps that store their content inside a database. Node.js is a powerful platform for creating scalable web programs. Any information on a site which uses Node.js is processed instantly, making it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking sites, web-based chats, browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any sort of website. Memcached can greatly lessen the load on the web server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, so it minimizes the amount of database queries the hosting server has to handle. Node.js shall permit you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the instant the end user enters it, so all the information is managed faster and in small bits. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. Because it operates quicker than any server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators around.
