Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do to improve your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is an application that speeds up a website, normally by caching its content. There are various types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of a website significantly. The latter is possible because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load shall also decline, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any type of website. In comparison, most hosting service providers do not provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web applications if you want to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a shared web hosting
account from our firm, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to improve the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could minimize the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it can raise the loading speed of any website as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that works on the hosting server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server
account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database server won't have to process the very same request if a number of users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. If that page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator will reduce the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you choose your VPS server
to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they are visited and delivers them every time the same individual visits them again, which shall speed up any sort of Internet site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script apps like Joomla™
and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, thus the database web server shall not have to process the exact same page each and every time visitors open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time applications like online games and chats. It operates much faster than similar platforms as it processes the information in little bits all the time and doesn't wait for users to enter a sizable piece of data which will need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you get a dedicated server
from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not simply will the Internet site work faster, but also the load on the web server will minimize since there shall be less 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 every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
