A web accelerator is a software which accelerates a site, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case such applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the hosting server, as a consequence boosting the performance of a site noticeably. The latter is achievable because accelerator applications work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to speed up any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web applications if you'd like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
In case you get one of our website hosting packages, you'll have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can considerably speed up any site since it caches the pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Since Varnish functions considerably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven websites. Considering that the site will connect to its database much less, the overall server load will be decreased substantially. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online programs such as chats and booking websites because it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
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 an excellent option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server will not need to process the same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. If that page is opened again by the same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a large piece of info, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you choose your VPS server to be set up with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most popular web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they're visited and provides them every time the same person visits them again, which will boost any sort of site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script programs such as Joomla and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database web server shall not need to process the same page every time guests open it in the event that the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time programs for example online games and chats. It operates faster than similar platforms since it processes the data in small pieces all the time and does not wait for users to enter a sizable piece of data that will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators come with several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can substantially reduce the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, so it lessens the amount of database queries the web server has to handle. Node.js shall enable you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information as soon as the end user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small bits. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of Internet sites. Since it operates faster than any hosting server, it can speed up a website at least several times and as a result, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators available on the market.
