Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do in order to increase your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a piece of software that accelerates a website typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such apps could 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 benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform considerably faster without employing more resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a website will need a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer one, we offer three different ones that will permit you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
If you acquire one of our shared website hosting plans, you will have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the pages a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator will increase significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven websites. Since the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall web server load shall be minimized notably. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications including chats and booking sites because it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you choose, these accelerators could be available or could be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingIn case you choose one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the guest opens them again up to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the hosting server doesn't have to process every request, which makes it perfect for database-driven sites, for example ones developed with Joomla™ or WordPress. Node.js is employed to build web apps which operate in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each and every bit of information the instant the user types it rather than waiting for large pieces of information to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated plans shall allow you to select how many instances of each and every accelerator will work at a time and how much memory they will use.
- Web Accelerators in VPSIf you get a virtual private server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are incorporated in our packages by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to create scalable apps where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the information in small pieces as the end user is entering it, therefore it works more quickly than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one sizeable piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same website again, which can speed any Internet site several times as Varnish functions more quickly than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is suitable for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator will be able to reduce the load on your web server as it will lower the number of database queries that your websites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingIn case you order a dedicated server from our firm and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info right away as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease since there shall be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a guest opens them and delivers them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the performance of a site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
