Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do to improve your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a program that quickens a website, usually by caching its content. There are different kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in place of the hosting server, therefore enhancing the performance of a site considerably. The latter is possible because accelerator programs work faster than a web server and not only will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to increase the speed of any type of site. In comparison, most hosting firms do not offer any web accelerators or offer only one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
packages include three web accelerators which you can use depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could tremendously improve the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and provides them to the visitors way 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 websites. Based on the web hosting package you pick, these three apps could already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you will be able to select how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of Internet hosting service providers, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web applications drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most effective web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, so it could easily boost any script-driven website. You could use it for any website built with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform that may be employed for any sort of websites. Depending on the content, it can boost the performance of a website close to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to build scalable Internet apps that process information in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes info consistently and in small pieces rather than waiting for the user to submit one sizeable chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any website via the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each of them shall work and how much memory they shall use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators come with several gbs of dedicated memory and you may use them to speed up any sort of Internet site. Memcached can significantly decrease the load on the web server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, so it lessens the amount of database queries that the hosting server has to handle. Node.js will allow you to create scalable applications with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data as soon as the end user enters it, so all the information is managed quicker and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Since it works faster than any web server, it could speed up a site at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators around.
