What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to raise your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such apps can be employed for both static and dynamic websites as there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site will perform considerably faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a website will need much less resources to operate since the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the web server. In contrast to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones that will allow you to speed up your sites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators together with our shared hosting
solutions and depending on what plan you shall pick when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most widely used one of them and it can be employed for any type of Internet site. It caches the pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it operates in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You will be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting
packages shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most famous accelerators since it can speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the hosting server will not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for websites built with apps like Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each and every time that very same guest opens them again. Varnish can speed up a website several times simply because it delivers content faster than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller bits the moment a user types something, as a result it functions much faster than similar platforms where users submit sizeable parts of information that require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each and every one of the 3 accelerators through your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS
All virtual private servers
which are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you'll have several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them when that guest opens them again, therefore the hosting server won't need to perform any action. Since Varnish works faster than any hosting server, an Internet site using this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven programs that store their content inside a database. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing scalable web apps. Any info on an Internet site that uses Node.js is processed in real time, making it an excellent choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you will have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for speeding up your sites. Memcached will be able to minimize the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be used to speed up any kind of website since it delivers the cached content way quicker than the web server each time a visitor opens the same webpage again. You can employ Node.js for online apps which demand real-time server-client interaction like online chats or booking websites. Unlike other platforms that wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the information piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably quicker and more efficiently. All dedicated server
packages come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
