Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do to raise your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a program which accelerates an Internet site, typically by caching its content. There are different sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the hosting server, as a consequence improving the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter is achievable because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will a site operate better, but the server load shall also decline, which will allow you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most hosting businesses don't provide any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
If you get one of our shared website hosting solutions, you'll have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly speed up any site as it caches the pages that a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish works way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall improve significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a hosting server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven websites. Because the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load will be reduced considerably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking sites because it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators as it can easily speed up any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server will not have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for sites developed with applications such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in little bits as soon as a user types anything, so it operates considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit big parts of data which require time to be processed. You can pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators using your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS HostingIn the event that you choose your virtual private server to be set up with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they're visited and provides them every time the same person visits them again, which can speed up any kind of Internet site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps for instance Joomla™ and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, as a result the database web server will not need to process the same page each time visitors open it in the event that the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time applications for instance online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms as it processes the information in little bits all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a substantial piece of data that will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web HostingMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can drastically decrease the load on the web server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, so it decreases the number of database queries which the web server has to tackle. Node.js will allow you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the moment the user enters it, so all the data is taken care of swifter and in small parts. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of Internet sites. As it works quicker than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators on the market.
