A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways based on the site content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. This way, you could employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several firms offer web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to enhance the performance of any type of website tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages come with 3 web accelerators that you could use depending on the Internet sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could greatly improve the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and delivers them to the site visitors faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs for example booking sites. With respect to the hosting package you choose, these three apps could already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are supplied only by a few hosting firms, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web applications substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators because it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven website by caching requests and responses, as a result the web server shall not have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for sites built with apps like Joomla, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a website visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can accelerate a website several times as it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes information in small parts as soon as a user enters anything, so it functions much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit massive chunks of information that require time to be processed. You could pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can greatly minimize the load on the server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, thus it minimizes the amount of database queries which the hosting server has to handle. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info the moment the end user enters it, so all the info is taken care of quicker and in small parts. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Since it operates quicker than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators available on the market.
