Learn what specifically web accelerators are and ways in which you are able to take advantage of them to improve your web site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. This way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators with our shared website hosting
solutions and based upon what plan you'll select when you sign up, they could already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be used for any sort of site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the server each and 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 Internet sites including online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so on. You will be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database server shall not need to process the exact same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load generated by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web apps such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In the event that you select Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for speeding up your sites. Memcached will be able to reduce the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic sites developed with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be employed to speed up any sort of website as it provides the cached content faster than the server any time a visitor opens the same site again. You could employ Node.js for online programs which call for real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills every box, so it operates considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server
solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
