A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such applications could be used for both dynamic and static sites because 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 website will perform considerably faster without using additional resources. On the contrary, this kind of a website will demand significantly less resources to function since the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the server. Unlike many businesses which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your Internet sites irrespective of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
If you host your sites within a website hosting account from our firm, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it could lessen the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any Internet site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps which works on the server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data should be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server won't need to process the very same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case that webpage is opened again by the exact same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load generated by your websites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of data, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available within the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are integrated with the Hepsia CP come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall receive several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them if that guest opens them again, so the web server won't have to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish functions much quicker than any web server, a site employing this accelerator will operate several times faster. Memcached is a platform which caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla and other script-driven apps that store their content within a database. Node.js is an effective platform for creating scalable web programs. Any information on a website that employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking websites, web-based chats, web browser games, etc.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you'll have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your websites. Memcached will be able to reduce the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole sites the first time a new website visitor opens them. It could be employed to speed up any type of website because it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the web server any time a visitor opens the same site again. You can use Node.js for online programs which require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms that await the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the data gradually as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those 3 web accelerators.
