A web accelerator is an application that accelerates a site, typically by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the hosting server, therefore enhancing the performance of a website greatly. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to speed up any sort of site. In comparison, most hosting providers don't offer any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
We offer 3 of the most popular web accelerators with our cloud web hosting
services and based upon what plan you'll choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be employed for any kind of site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used 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 employed for scalable web apps and it works in real-time, which makes it excellent for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You will be able to select what amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia Internet hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated server
packages shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators since it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, consequently the server won't have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is ideal for websites built with applications such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a website several times simply because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller pieces as soon as a user enters something, so it works much faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive portions of info that require time to be processed. You could pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are integrated in our solutions by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in smaller bits as the end user is entering it, thus it works quicker than other platforms which wait for the end users to input one large part of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in case the same visitor opens the same page again, which could speed any website several times as Varnish works quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is appropriate for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can easily reduce the load on your web server since it shall lower the number of database queries that your Internet sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package deal which you pick, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can lessen the web server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website created with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can improve the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that faster than the hosting server, the website visitor will be able to surf your website at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will enable you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the information in tiny pieces as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of data, which makes Node.js much faster than similar applications.
