Understand what specifically web accelerators are and in what ways you are able to take full advantage of them to boost your site’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software could work in different ways based on the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. That way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
If you host your websites within a web hosting account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to enhance 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 can minimize the load of such Internet sites significantly. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that considerably faster than the hosting server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which operates on the hosting server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for 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 package that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated server packages will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. Memcached is among the most well known accelerators as it can easily speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is ideal for Internet sites designed with programs like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator which caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them every time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a site several times simply because it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in little parts the moment a user types anything, therefore it works faster than similar platforms where users submit massive chunks of data that need time to be processed. You'll be able to choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn case you choose your VPS server to be set up with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they are visited and delivers them every time the same person visits them again, which can speed up any kind of site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script applications for example Joomla™ and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, thus the database server shall not have to process the same webpage each 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 works faster than similar platforms because it processes the info in small parts all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a large piece of data that will need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can greatly decrease the load on the server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, so it minimizes the number of database queries the web server has to handle. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information the instant the end user enters it, so all the information is managed faster and in small portions. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. As it works quicker than any web server, it could speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators around.
