Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to raise your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side application which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software could function in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. This is valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the web server. That way, you could use a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Few firms supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they often offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any sort of site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
packages include three web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously boost the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and provides them to the site visitors faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs such as booking websites. Depending on the web hosting plan you pick, these 3 applications could already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of web hosting providers, including ours, and they could increase the speed of your web programs substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia CP that is included with our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most popular accelerators because it can effortlessly accelerate any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the web server won't have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for websites developed with programs such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any type of content and is also often called 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 visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate an Internet site several times because it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in small bits as soon as a user enters anything, as a result it functions faster than similar platforms in which users submit big pieces of information which need time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the plan that you opt for, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will minimize the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be dealt with as it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - for example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any kind of site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the web pages if the same visitor opens them later and considering the fact that it does that considerably faster than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a few times faster. That is why Varnish is oftentimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will permit you to build booking websites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the data in little parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
