A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a site typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such programs may be employed for both static and dynamic sites since there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform significantly faster without using more system resources. On the contrary, such a website will require much less resources to function since the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the hosting server. Unlike many businesses that do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer one, we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to speed up your sites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
packages feature three web accelerators that you can use depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably improve the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and delivers them to the visitors way quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications including booking sites. Based on the Internet hosting plan you choose, these 3 applications could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are offered only by a few Internet hosting firms, including ours, and they could raise the speed of your web applications significantly.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated server
solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators as it can speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, consequently the hosting server will not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is ideal for websites built with programs like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up an Internet site several times as it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time applications such as chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in small parts the instant a user types something, so it works faster than similar platforms where users submit massive pieces of info that need time to be processed. You could select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the three accelerators via your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In case you choose your VPS server
to be set up with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they are visited and provides them whenever the same person visits them again, which shall speed up any type of site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications such as Joomla™
and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database web server won't need to process the very same page each time guests open it if the same content should be shown. Node.js is a platform for creating real-time apps like online games and chats. It operates much quicker than similar platforms as it processes the data in tiny pieces all the time and doesn't wait for users to input a substantial piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for increasing the speed of your Internet sites. Memcached can easily decrease the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make since it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic websites designed with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new visitor opens them. It could be employed to speed up any sort of website as it provides the cached content faster than the server each time a guest opens the same webpage again. You can employ Node.js for online apps that call for real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking sites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info bit by bit as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server
packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
