What exactly do web accelerators do? What could you do in order to boost your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a site, usually by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, thus increasing the performance of a site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will enable you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to speed up any type of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your websites within a cloud hosting account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you would like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it could reduce the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can increase the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the web server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other programs where lots of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingThe Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators because it can effortlessly speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, consequently the web server will not have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for sites created with apps like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up a website several times simply because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in small pieces the moment a user types anything, therefore it works much faster than similar platforms where users submit big parts of data which need time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators through your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPSIf you choose your virtual private server to be set up with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most popular web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they're visited and delivers them every time the same individual visits them again, which will boost any type of Internet site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script programs like Joomla™ and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database web server shall not have to process the very same website every time visitors open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time apps for instance online games and chats. It operates considerably faster than similar platforms because it processes the data in little portions all the time and does not wait for users to enter a sizable piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS plans and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated HostingMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These three web accelerators offer several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any type of Internet site. Memcached can drastically decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, so it lessens the amount of database queries which the hosting server has to deal with. Node.js will permit you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data the instant the end user enters it, so all the data is handled faster and in small bits. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them every time the same visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of sites. Because it operates quicker than any web server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is amongst the most popular web accelerators on the market.
