A web accelerator is a server-side program which accelerates a website. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic sites because 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 minimized overall load on the machine. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they typically offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to boost the performance of any sort of Internet site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
Our website hosting packages come with 3 web accelerators which you can employ depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably enhance the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors considerably faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications such as booking sites. Based on the web hosting package you select, these 3 applications may already be included or may be optional upgrades. Regardless, you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are supplied only by several hosting service providers, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web programs drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account depending on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it is an excellent choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't need to process exactly the same request if many users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case that page is opened again by the exact same visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers which are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators feature several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could use them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can substantially reduce the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the number of database queries which the server has to handle. Node.js will enable you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes info the instant the end user enters it, so all the information is managed quicker and in small portions. Varnish caches whole Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each and every time the same guest opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. As it works faster than any web server, it can speed up a website at least several times and due to this fact, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators out there.
