Understand what specifically web accelerators are and in what way you are able to make the most of them to boost your website’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software may work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of companies supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to enhance the performance of any type of website noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators with our shared hosting
packages and based on what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic websites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You will be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia Internet hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated server
solutions shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators as it can effortlessly speed up any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the server shall not need to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for websites designed with programs such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up a site several times because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes information in smaller pieces the moment a user types anything, so it operates considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit large pieces of data which need time to be processed. You'll be able to pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you obtain a dedicated server
from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decline as there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire web pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server each time the same visitor opens them later on. As Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
