A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website generally by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such programs can be used for both static and dynamic Internet sites as there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform significantly faster without employing extra resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a website will need a lesser amount of resources to function since the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. Unlike many companies which don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to speed up your Internet sites regardless of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
We provide three of the most well-known web accelerators along with our web hosting packages and based upon what plan you'll pick when you sign up, they may already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be used for any type of site. It caches the pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the web server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic sites including online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it functions in real-time, which makes it perfect for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and so forth. You'll be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each shall run from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not have to process the very same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. If that page is opened again by the very same guest, it will be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In the event that you buy a dedicated server from us and you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information instantly as the client enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there shall be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire websites once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Since Varnish processes web requests faster than any server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator may increase nearly 300%.
