What precisely do web accelerators do? What could you do to raise your website's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a website typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be employed for both static and dynamic sites as there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given website will perform noticeably faster without using additional resources. On the contrary, such a site will demand a lesser amount of resources to operate because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Unlike many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your websites irrespective of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a shared website hosting account from us, you shall have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can decrease the load of such sites tremendously. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it could boost the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which works on the hosting server and not within the visitor's browser. It's used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of the accelerators depends upon the hosting solution which you pick - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated HostingYou will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a fantastic choice for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™. That way, the database hosting server shall not need to process the very same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any type of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. If that page is opened again by the same website visitor, it'll be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Using this web accelerator can reduce the load generated by your sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web apps like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of info, but processes whatever the user 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 every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS HostingIf you choose your virtual private server to be integrated with the Hepsia CP, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widely used web accelerators. Varnish caches webpages the first time they're visited and delivers them each and every time the same individual visits them again, which will accelerate any sort of Internet site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script applications for instance Joomla™ and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database hosting server shall not have to process the same webpage each and every time guests open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time apps like online games and chats. It works much faster than similar platforms since it processes the data in tiny portions all the time and does not wait for users to enter a large piece of data which shall require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web HostingMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and based on the plan that you pick, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can lessen the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be handled because it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - for example, any website created with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish can improve the performance of any type of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and since it does that considerably faster than the server, the visitor will be able to look through your site at least a few times faster. That's why Varnish is sometimes categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that'll allow you to create booking websites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in small parts as the client fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of info, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
