What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do to improve your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such applications could be employed for both static and dynamic websites since there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform considerably faster without using more system resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will require a lesser amount of resources to operate because the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer three different ones that will permit you to speed up your sites irrespective of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
We provide 3 of the most well-known web accelerators together with our cloud hosting
services and based upon what plan you shall select when you sign up, they could already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be used for any type of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the hosting server each and every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic websites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You will be able to select the amount of memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia Internet hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose one of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, you shall be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program that caches pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the site visitor opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the hosting server doesn't have to process each and every request, which makes it suitable for database-driven sites, for example ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to produce web apps that work in real-time like chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes every bit of data the moment the user types it as opposed to waiting for large chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions will enable you to pick how many instances of each and every accelerator will work at a time and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In the event that you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your sites. Memcached can easily minimize the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic Internet sites built with WordPress, Joomla™
and similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It may be used to accelerate any kind of site because it delivers the cached content way quicker than the hosting server each time a website visitor opens the same webpage again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online applications which require real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. In contrast to other platforms which wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills every box, so it works considerably faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server
plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
