A web accelerator is an application that speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are various kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the web server, hence improving the performance of a site greatly. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to accelerate any type of site. In comparison, most hosting providers don't offer any web accelerators or provide only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you want to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from us, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to improve the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily reduce the load of such sites significantly. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the hosting server, so it can raise the loading speed of any website approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the web server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting package which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated hosting plans shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most well-known accelerators because it can easily speed up any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server shall not have to process identical requests time after time. The platform is perfect for websites created with apps such as Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them each time that very same visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up an Internet site several times as it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in little parts the instant a user enters anything, so it works much faster than similar platforms where users submit big portions of information which need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated inside our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the info in smaller bits as the user is entering it, therefore it functions quicker than other platforms which wait for the users to submit one massive piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can speed any site several times because Varnish operates a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to minimize the load on your hosting server as it'll decrease the number of database queries that your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the plan that you opt for, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can minimize the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be taken care of since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every Internet site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any type of site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later and given that it does that much faster than the server, the website visitor will be able to browse your website at least a couple of times faster. For this reason Varnish is oftentimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll permit you to develop booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the data in little bits as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of information, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar programs.
