A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the server. That way, you may use a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they usually offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to boost the performance of any sort of Internet site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to pick 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 website and its database, so it can reduce the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the server, so it can boost the loading speed of any site as much as 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that operates on the server and not within the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting plan which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server shall not have to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a website with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a website visitor opens a page. In case this webpage is opened again by the exact same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load produced by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can drastically decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, so it decreases the number of database queries that the server has to take care of. Node.js shall permit you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the user enters it, so all the data is handled faster and in small parts. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them each time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of websites. Since it operates quicker than any web server, it can speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators out there.
