Determine what specifically web accelerators are and how it is possible to take advantage of them to boost your web site’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates an Internet site typically by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such programs can be used for both dynamic and static sites since there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about employing a web accelerator is that a given site will perform considerably faster without employing additional system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will demand a lesser amount of resources to work because the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the server. In contrast to many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting solutions feature 3 web accelerators that you will be able to employ depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can drastically enhance the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches webpages and provides them to the site visitors much quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs including booking websites. Depending upon the hosting package you choose, these 3 programs might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a few web hosting service providers, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web apps substantially.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersYou will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is an excellent option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla™. This way, the database server won't have to process the very same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. In case this page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your sites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the client is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All 3 accelerators are incorporated within our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to build scalable applications where real-time interaction is required - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so on. It processes the information in little portions as the end user is entering it, as a result it works much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to input one massive part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which operates as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same website visitor opens the same webpage again, which can speed any Internet site several times as Varnish works quicker than any web server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, consequently it's appropriate for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator will be able to lessen the load on your web server as it'll reduce the amount of database queries that your Internet sites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersIf you get a dedicated server from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time 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 site, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the web server will reduce as there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later. Because Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
