A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a site, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the common case this kind of applications cache static content or database responses and provide them in lieu of the web server, hence enhancing the performance of an Internet site noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site work better, but the server load shall also decline, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will enable you to increase the speed of any kind of site. In comparison, most hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web applications in case you would like to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting solutions come with three web accelerators that you can employ depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors way quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps including booking sites. With respect to the web hosting solution you choose, these 3 applications may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are supplied only by a handful of Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web apps considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server will not need to process the very same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. In case this page is opened again by the very same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can decrease the load produced by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would be determined by the package deal that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, consequently lowering the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for building web applications for example booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is carried out by processing small pieces of information as soon any user enters anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms await users to input loads of info before they process it, therefore they work more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire web pages and delivers them instead of the server at a faster rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any kind of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In the event that you order a dedicated server from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven website, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the server will decrease as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire pages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
