What precisely do web accelerators do? What could you do in order to raise your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites since the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not just the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the web server. This way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few firms supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to boost the performance of any kind of website noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
When you acquire one of our shared hosting
solutions, you will have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can tremendously increase the speed of any site as it caches the web pages that a visitor opens for the first time and provides them every time that visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will increase substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a web server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Because the Internet site will connect to its database a lot less, the overall server load shall be reduced substantially. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs such as chats and booking websites since it processes data in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you select one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you'll be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the guest opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the web server doesn't need to process each request, which makes it suitable for database-driven sites, for instance ones designed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web apps that operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each bit of data the moment the user types it rather than waiting for sizeable portions of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated plans will enable you to pick how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are set up with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them when that guest opens them again, therefore the web server will not have to perform any action. As Varnish operates much faster than any server, an Internet site employing this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is used for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven programs that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an effective platform for building scalable web applications. Any information on a website which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for accelerating your sites. Memcached will be able to reduce the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic websites designed with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It can be employed to speed up any sort of site because it provides the cached content much quicker than the hosting server each time a customer opens the same page again. You'll be able to use Node.js for online apps that demand real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking Internet sites. Unlike other platforms that await the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills each and every box, so it operates much faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server
solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
