What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do to increase your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the general situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both dynamic and static websites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the advantage of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the hosting server. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few companies provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that'll enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
We offer three of the most well-known web accelerators with our web hosting
solutions and depending on what plan you'll select when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it could be used for any sort of website. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them at a considerably faster speed compared to the web server each time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can boost the speed of dynamic Internet sites like online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web apps and it operates in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You shall be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia web hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia CP which is included with our semi-dedicated hosting
packages shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators since it can increase the speed of any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, consequently the server shall not need to process identical requests again and again. The platform is suitable for sites designed with programs such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a highly effective accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them every time that very same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can easily speed up an Internet site several times as it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes info in little parts the instant a user enters something, as a result it functions faster than similar platforms where users submit large chunks of info which require time to be processed. You can pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the three accelerators via your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for increasing the speed of your websites. Memcached can easily lessen the load on the server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic websites developed with WordPress, Joomla™
and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It could be employed to speed up any sort of Internet site as it delivers the cached content faster than the hosting server any time a website visitor opens the same webpage again. You could employ Node.js for online applications that demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. In contrast to other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info bit by bit as the user fills every box, so it functions much faster and more effectively. All dedicated server
plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
