What precisely do web accelerators do? What can you do in order to raise your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side program which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading website, but also the lessened overall load on the machine. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to improve the performance of any type of site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
solutions feature 3 web accelerators which you could employ depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly 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 web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps for example booking sites. Depending upon the web hosting package you select, these three applications may already be included or may be optional upgrades. Regardless, you will be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of Internet hosting service providers, including ours, and they can increase the speed of your web programs substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you select one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server if the guest opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so the web server does not need to process each and every request, that makes it suitable for database-driven Internet sites, for instance ones designed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web applications which function in real-time including chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each bit of information the moment the user enters it rather than waiting for massive chunks of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated solutions shall enable you to select how many instances of every accelerator will work at a time and just how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you get a VPS server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are incorporated inside our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, etcetera. It processes the data in small portions as the end user is entering it, thus it functions quicker than other platforms that wait for the end users to input one big bit of data. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can easily speed any Internet site several times since Varnish operates quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, therefore it is ideal for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can decrease the load on your hosting server since it will decrease the amount of database queries that your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you purchase a dedicated server
from our company and you pick Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data right away as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven site, not only will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce because there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole websites once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the server whenever the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much quicker than any hosting server, the efficiency of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
