Learn what exactly web accelerators are and ways in which you can take full advantage of them to enhance your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is an application that quickens a site, normally by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such programs cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the server, hence boosting the performance of a website significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also minimize, which will enable you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will permit you to increase the speed of any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting businesses don't offer any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you acquire one of our cloud hosting packages, you shall have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably accelerate any site since it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions way quicker than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will raise considerably. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven sites. Since the website will connect to its database way less, the overall server load will be decreased notably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps such as chats and booking websites since it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Depending on the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or may be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingIf you select one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the website visitor opens them again nearly 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the server doesn't need to process each and every request, which makes it perfect for database-driven sites, for example ones built with Joomla™ or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web applications that work in real-time including chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each bit of information the moment the user types it instead of waiting for large portions of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated packages shall permit you to pick how many instances of every accelerator will work at a time and what amount of memory they will use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingIn the event that you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included in our solutions by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to create scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etc. It processes the info in smaller portions as the user is entering it, as a result it functions faster than other platforms which wait for the users to enter one sizeable piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same website again, which could speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish functions quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, therefore it's appropriate for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your server because it'll reduce the amount of database queries which your sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingIn case you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for speeding up your sites. Memcached can lessen the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic sites developed with WordPress, Joomla™ and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be used to accelerate any type of Internet site because it provides the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server any time a customer opens the same page again. You could use Node.js for online applications that call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the data little by little as the user fills each box, so it functions faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
