Determine what precisely web accelerators are and ways in which you are able to benefit from them to boost your site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side program which quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both dynamic and static websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to employ a lower-end hosting package that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few companies provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that'll enable you to improve the performance of any type of site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
When you host your websites within a shared website hosting account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites drastically. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which works on the web server and not in the visitor's browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingYou shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a fantastic option for any script program like WordPress or Joomla™. This way, the database hosting server won't need to process the exact same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a page. If that web page is opened again by the very same visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator will reduce the load generated by your websites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large 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'll be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS Web HostingIn case you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are included in our solutions by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in small parts as the user is entering it, as a result it operates much faster than other platforms that wait for the users to submit one big part of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same page again, which can speed any site several times since Varnish operates quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's appropriate for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily minimize the load on your server as it shall reduce the number of database queries that your Internet sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers HostingIf you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to reduce the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla™ and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire pages the first time a new guest opens them. It could be employed to accelerate any type of site because it provides the cached content considerably faster than the server each 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 sites. Different from other platforms which await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills each and every box, so it works faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
