A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the reduced overall load on the web server. This way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of companies provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a web hosting
account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it could lessen the load of such sites drastically. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which operates on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is employed for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you pick - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database server won't have to process the exact same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. In case this webpage is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can reduce the load generated by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the client is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can drastically decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, thus it lessens the amount of database queries which the server has to take care of. Node.js shall enable you to develop scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information the instant the user enters it, so all the info is managed quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Because it works quicker than any server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
