What precisely do web accelerators do? What could you do to raise your Internet site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a website, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the server, therefore boosting the performance of a site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any kind of website. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses don't provide any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting
packages feature three web accelerators that you will be able to employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could greatly boost the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the website visitors way quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps such as booking sites. Depending upon the web hosting package you select, these 3 applications might already be included or may be optional upgrades. Regardless, you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are supplied only by a few Internet hosting service providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web apps drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose one of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, you shall be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the visitor opens them again up to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the web server doesn't have to process each request, which makes it ideal for database-driven websites, for example ones designed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to develop web applications which work in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each and every bit of data the instant the user enters it rather than waiting for sizeable portions of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which is provided with our semi-dedicated solutions shall allow you to select how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and the amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS
In case you obtain a virtual private server
with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated inside our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the info in little pieces as the user is entering it, therefore it works faster than other platforms which wait for the users to enter one big piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same guest opens the same website again, which could speed any site several times because Varnish functions quicker than any web server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is ideal for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your web server as it will lower the amount of database queries your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any kind of website. Memcached can greatly minimize the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven sites since it caches database responses, therefore it minimizes the number of database queries which the server has to take care of. Node.js will enable you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info the moment the end user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of websites. As it works quicker than any web server, it could speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators around.
