What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to raise your Internet site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software program that speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such applications may be used for both static and dynamic websites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform substantially faster without employing more resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a website will require much less resources to function since the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the hosting server. Unlike many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to speed up your websites irrespective of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our shared web hosting packages, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could greatly speed up any Internet site because it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish functions faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall raise substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed mainly for database-driven sites. Because the site shall connect to its database way less, the overall server load will be reduced significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps like chats and booking sites since it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the package you pick, these accelerators could be available or might be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersYou shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted within your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla™. That way, the database web server will not have to process the very same request if a number of users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that webpage is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the hosting server. Employing this web accelerator will reduce the load generated by your sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to produce scalable web applications like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn the event that you choose your VPS server to be incorporated with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they're visited and provides them every time the same individual visits them again, which shall speed up any type of site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications such as Joomla™ and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, thus the database server will not have to process the same website each and every time guests open it in the event that 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 as it processes the info in small portions all the time and doesn't wait for users to submit a substantial piece of data that will need more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIn the event that you order a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data immediately as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the site work faster, but also the load on the server will reduce because there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each and every time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the performance of a website using this accelerator may increase around 300%.
