A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a site, usually 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 deliver them in lieu of the hosting server, thus enhancing the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site function better, but the server load will also decline, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to increase the speed of any type of site. In comparison, most web hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you would like to employ this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators with our shared website hosting
solutions and based upon what plan you will select when you sign up, they may already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it could be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the hosting 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 sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You shall be able to choose just how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated hosting
packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most well-known accelerators as it can accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, as a result the web server will not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is ideal for sites designed with apps like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up a website several times since it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes data in smaller pieces as soon as a user types anything, so it works faster than similar platforms where users submit massive parts of information which require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
that are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your web server will also come with a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the package that you choose. Memcached is used for script-driven websites as it caches database responses, consequently decreasing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an effective platform for creating web apps for example booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is performed by processing smaller pieces of information as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. By comparison, other platforms wait for users to input loads of data before they process it, therefore they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire webpages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you buy a dedicated server
from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans come with 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 programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will reduce because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
