A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website usually by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such programs may be employed for both dynamic and static Internet sites as there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform considerably faster without employing more system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will require significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to speed up your websites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared website hosting account from us, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such Internet sites substantially. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that works on the server and not within the visitor's browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting package that you pick - they may 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 VPS Hosting
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers that are purchased with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server shall also come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you pick. Memcached is used for script-driven websites because it caches database responses, as a result lowering the amount of queries which a script sends to its database. It may be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing web applications including booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is conducted by processing small parts of information as soon any user enters anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms wait for customers to enter plenty of information before they process it, thus they work slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire pages and provides them instead of the server at a considerably quicker rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any sort of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to decrease the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole webpages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It can be employed to speed up any kind of site since it provides the cached content faster than the hosting server any time a website visitor opens the same site again. You can use Node.js for online programs that require real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking sites. Unlike other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information gradually as the user fills every box, so it operates faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
