Determine what exactly web accelerators are and just how you'll be able to take full advantage of them to improve your website’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software program which accelerates a website generally by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such programs may be employed for both static and dynamic sites as there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform substantially faster without employing extra system resources. On the contrary, such a website will require significantly less resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the hosting server. In contrast to many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that'll permit you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
We provide 3 of the most well-known web accelerators together with our hosting services and depending on what plan you will select when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it could be used for any kind of website. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them at a faster speed compared to the web server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic websites such as online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web applications 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 choose how much memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersThe Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated server solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most well known accelerators because it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the hosting server will not have to process identical requests over and over again. The platform is suitable for websites developed with applications like Joomla™, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches web pages which are opened by a visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up an Internet site several times as it delivers content quicker than any hosting server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time apps like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes information in little bits the instant a user types something, therefore it functions considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit large pieces of information which require time to be processed. You'll be able to pick the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators via your CP.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersAll VPS servers which are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you shall get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, which is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them in case that guest opens them again, therefore the server will not have to perform any action. Since Varnish functions much faster than any web server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall operate several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it is employed for WordPress, Joomla™ and other script-driven programs which store their content within a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for developing scalable web apps. Any information on a site which employs Node.js is processed right away, making it a superb choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, web browser games, and so on.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and depending on the package that you select, you shall also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall minimize the web server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every website that uses an API or a database - as an illustration, any site built with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish could boost the performance of any sort of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the exact same visitor opens them afterwards and because it does that way quicker than the server, the visitor will be able to look through your site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will allow you to create booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the data in small parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of data, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar programs.
