A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a website usually by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be employed for both dynamic and static sites since there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform significantly faster without employing additional system resources. Just the opposite, such a site will require significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will take care of most requests rather than the web server. Contrary to many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans feature 3 web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the websites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can greatly boost the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches webpages and provides them to the visitors way quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs including booking websites. Depending on the Internet hosting package you choose, these 3 applications might already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are provided only by a few Internet hosting firms, including ours, and they can boost the speed of your web applications drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database server shall not have to process the very same request if a number of users open a webpage 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 visitor opens an Internet site. In case this web page is opened again by the exact same guest, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a much better speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load generated by your Internet sites considerably. Last, but not least, Node.js will allow you to build scalable web applications like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a customer to submit a large piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The three web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all our dedicated servers that are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you may employ them to speed up any type of website. Memcached can greatly decrease the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites since it caches database responses, thus it lessens the amount of database queries the web server has to handle. Node.js shall allow you to build scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction such as chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes data as soon as the end user enters it, so all the info is taken care of swifter and in small pieces. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them each and every time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any type of Internet sites. Since it works quicker than any hosting server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators out there.
