A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up an Internet site typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such apps can be used for both static and dynamic websites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform noticeably faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, such a website will need much less resources to work as the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the server. Contrary to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages include three web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the websites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and provides them to the website visitors much faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. With respect to the hosting package you select, these three applications may already be included or could be optional upgrades. Either way, you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting companies, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web apps significantly.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a great choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't have to process the same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case this web page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can reduce the load generated by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Hosting
In case you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All 3 accelerators are included inside our solutions by default and come with dedicated memory of a few hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in smaller bits as the user is entering it, therefore it functions more quickly than other platforms which wait for the end users to submit one big piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same guest opens the same website again, which can certainly speed any Internet site several times due to the fact that Varnish operates quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it is ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your hosting server because it shall decrease the number of database queries which your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the user enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decline because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole websites once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
