A web accelerator is an application which speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the hosting server, therefore improving the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not only will a website function better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any sort of website. In comparison, most web hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web applications if you'd like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators together with our cloud hosting services and based on what plan you'll select when you sign up, they may already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it may be used for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a considerably faster speed compared to the server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic sites like online stores, forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it functions in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You will be able to select how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server packages will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators since it can accelerate any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, thus the server shall not have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for websites developed with apps like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a website several times since it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in small bits as soon as a user types something, therefore it operates considerably faster than similar platforms in which users submit large pieces of info which need time to be processed. You can pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your web server will also include a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the specific amount would be determined by the package deal that you select. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, as a result decreasing the number of queries which a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is an effective platform for creating web applications including booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is carried out by processing little pieces of information as soon any user inputs anything on the webpage. In contrast, other platforms wait for users to enter a considerable amount of information before they process it, therefore they operate slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole web pages and provides them instead of the hosting server at a faster rate. It is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of website.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you order a dedicated server from our firm and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the client enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the efficiency of an Internet site using this accelerator may increase up to 300%.
