Understand what specifically web accelerators are and in what way you are able to take advantage of them to boost your site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates a website usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such applications can be employed for both dynamic and static websites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform noticeably faster without employing additional resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will demand much less resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Unlike many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you get one of our cloud web hosting solutions, you will have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can tremendously speed up any site since it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions much faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will grow substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven Internet sites. Considering that the website will connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load will be reduced significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking Internet sites as it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the package you choose, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated server packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most well-known accelerators since it can easily increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the web server will not have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is suitable for sites built with apps such as Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each time that same visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a site several times since it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in small pieces the instant a user enters anything, so it functions considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit sizeable parts of info that require time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn case you choose your VPS server to be set up with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they are visited and provides them each and every time the same individual visits them again, which can boost any kind of Internet site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script applications for instance Joomla™ and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, thus the database hosting server won't need to process the exact same website each and every time visitors open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time programs like online games and chats. It functions considerably faster than similar platforms as it processes the information in small pieces all the time and does not wait for users to submit a large piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and include several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIf you buy a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole websites once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
