A web accelerator is an application that speeds up an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the general case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the server, hence increasing the performance of a website noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will allow you to accelerate any type of site. In comparison, most web hosting businesses don't provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you'd like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting
packages feature 3 web accelerators which you will be able to use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously improve the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and delivers them to the visitors faster than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps including booking websites. Based on the hosting solution you pick, these 3 apps might already be included or may be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by several hosting service providers, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web apps substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server
account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's an excellent choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database web server shall not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator can minimize the load produced by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the plan you pick, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site created with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish could boost the performance of any sort of site by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later and given that it does that considerably faster than the server, the visitor will be able to browse your site at least a few times faster. This is why Varnish is often called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that'll allow you to develop booking websites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in little parts as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
