A web accelerator is a piece of software which accelerates a site generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such apps can be employed for both static and dynamic websites because there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform significantly faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a website will require significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the hosting server. Contrary to many companies which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting
plans come with 3 web accelerators that you can employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly enhance the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches web pages and delivers them to the site visitors much quicker than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as booking sites. Based on the hosting solution you choose, these three applications may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of web hosting firms, including ours, and they could raise the speed of your web programs substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting
plans shall permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators as it can accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, thus the web server won't need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for sites created with applications such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that same guest opens them again. Varnish can easily accelerate a site several times because it delivers content faster than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in little pieces as soon as a user types something, as a result it operates faster than similar platforms in which users submit massive pieces of data that need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also include a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would be determined by the package deal that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven sites as it caches database responses, as a result reducing the number of queries a script sends to its database. It may be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing web applications like booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a web server is done by processing little bits of information as soon any user enters anything on the site. In contrast, other platforms wait for customers to enter a whole lot of information before they process it, thus they function more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the server at a considerably quicker rate. It is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any kind of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server
from our company and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will reduce because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server every time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any web server, the performance of a site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
