A web accelerator is a server-side program which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. This way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several firms provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to improve the performance of any kind of website considerably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
When you purchase one of our shared website hosting solutions, you'll have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably increase the speed of any website as it caches the pages which a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven sites. Since the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be reduced substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications including chats and booking sites because it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database server won't have to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case that web page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load produced by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web apps such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
In the event that you choose your virtual private server to be set up with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they are visited and delivers them whenever the same individual visits them again, which shall accelerate any sort of Internet site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script programs like Joomla and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same webpage each time visitors open it if the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time programs for instance online games and chats. It works much faster than similar platforms since it processes the info in tiny pieces all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a sizable piece of data that shall need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and include several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you obtain a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce as there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
