A web accelerator is a program that speeds up an Internet site, normally by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case this kind of apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the web server, thus improving the performance of an Internet site considerably. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not only will a website work better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will permit you to run heavy sites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will enable you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting service providers don't provide any web accelerators or provide just one, which limits your choice of web apps if you would like to employ such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites within a cloud website hosting
account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between a site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such websites drastically. Varnish caches entire 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 much more quickly than the hosting server, so it could raise the loading speed of any site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that works on the server and not within the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where a lot of data should be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends on the hosting package which you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server
solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is among the most widely used accelerators as it can easily speed up any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the server won't have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for sites developed with programs such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages that are opened by a visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that very same website visitor opens them again. Varnish can speed up a site several times simply because it delivers content faster than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time applications such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in small pieces the instant a user types something, so it operates much more quickly than similar platforms in which users submit massive portions of data that need time to be processed. You could choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the 3 accelerators via your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you choose your VPS server
to be set up with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 of the most widespread web accelerators. Varnish caches websites the first time they're visited and provides them each time the same person visits them again, which shall speed up any kind of site several times. Memcached is employed for dynamic script apps for instance Joomla™
and WordPress because it caches database requests and responses, therefore the database hosting server shall not have to process the exact same page each time guests open it if the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for developing real-time programs such as online games and chats. It operates much quicker than similar platforms since it processes the data in little portions all the time and does not wait for users to submit a large piece of data which will require more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are available with all Hepsia-based VPS solutions and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire a dedicated server
from us and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data instantly as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will decrease because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a guest opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them afterwards. As Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the performance of a website using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
