A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up a website typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such programs can be used for both dynamic and static Internet sites because 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 site shall perform noticeably faster without using extra resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will demand much less resources to function since the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
In case you buy one of our hosting plans, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can significantly increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the web pages a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall increase noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven sites. Considering that the website shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be decreased substantially. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs such as chats and booking websites because it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it is a great choice for any script program like WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server will not have to process the very same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that webpage is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load produced by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of info, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are included in our plans by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking sites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in little portions as the end user is entering it, as a result it functions quicker than other platforms which wait for the users to input one big piece of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same website again, which can speed any website several times since Varnish works a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is suitable for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your web server since it shall reduced the amount of database queries your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package deal which you opt for, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will lessen the server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be dealt with because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on any Internet site which uses an API or a database - for example, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and because it does that considerably faster than the server, the website visitor shall be able to surf your website at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is occasionally categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will enable you to build booking sites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the info in small bits as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial piece of info, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
