A web accelerator is a software application which accelerates a site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the server. Such applications can be employed for both static and dynamic sites as there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform substantially faster without employing additional resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will require much less resources to operate since the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer one, we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to speed up your sites whatever their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
packages include three web accelerators that you will be able to employ depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly improve the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors considerably faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as booking websites. Depending on the web hosting solution you choose, these 3 programs could already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you will be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of hosting service providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web applications considerably.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are included in our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the info in small bits as the end user is entering it, as a result it operates quicker than other platforms that wait for the users to input one large bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any website several times due to the fact that Varnish functions faster than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your hosting server since it will reduce the amount of database queries which your websites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators offer several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any sort of Internet site. Memcached can drastically reduce the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, so it decreases the amount of database queries the web server has to take care of. Node.js shall allow you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the info is taken care of swifter and in small parts. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of Internet sites. Since it functions quicker than any server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is among the most popular web accelerators out there.
