Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do to improve your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software which speeds up a site, usually by caching its content. There are different types of accelerators, but in the common case such programs cache static content or database responses and deliver them in place of the web server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of a site noticeably. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a server and not simply will an Internet site function better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting packages, which will allow you to accelerate any kind of site. In comparison, most website hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web apps if you'd like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators with our shared web hosting
solutions and based on what plan you will choose when you sign up, they could already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it could be employed for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic sites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications and it functions in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You will be able to select how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each and every one will run from your Hepsia Internet hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most popular accelerators as it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server shall not need to process identical requests time after time. The platform is perfect for Internet sites designed with apps like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an effective accelerator that caches any type of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can speed up a website several times as it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps like chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in little bits the moment a user enters something, as a result it functions much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit large parts of data which require time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators using your CP.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the package deal which you opt for, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be handled as it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every Internet site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any site developed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can enhance the performance of any type of website by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and considering the fact that it does that much faster than the server, the website visitor shall be able to surf your site at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will allow you to create booking sites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in little pieces as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar apps.
