What precisely do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to improve your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates an Internet site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. This is valid for both static and dynamic sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator isn't simply the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the server. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer just 1, while we offer three different ones that will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of Internet site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you host your websites in a shared hosting
account from us, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to improve 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 can lessen the load of such Internet sites tremendously. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same guest opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it could boost the loading speed of any site up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which functions on the server and not inside the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting package that you select - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall 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 within your semi-dedicated server
account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is an excellent choice for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database server shall not have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a webpage with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any type of content the first time a guest opens a site. In case this webpage is opened again by the very same visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator will reduce the load generated by your sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web applications like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a client to submit a large piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to pick how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you choose your VPS server
to be incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they are visited and delivers them each time the same individual visits them again, which can boost any sort of website several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps for example Joomla™
and WordPress as it caches database requests and responses, thus the database server will not need to process the exact same page each and every time visitors open it in the event that the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time applications like online games and chats. It works considerably faster than similar platforms since it processes the data in little bits all the time and does not wait for users to enter a large piece of data that shall require more time to be processed. The three web accelerators are offered with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you buy a dedicated server
from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your Internet sites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will decline as there will be a lesser amount of database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches entire websites once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the web server every time the same visitor opens them later. Since Varnish processes web requests much faster than any web server, the performance of an Internet site using this accelerator could increase nearly 300%.
