What exactly do web accelerators do? What could you do to be able to improve your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both dynamic and static websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading Internet site, but also the decreased overall load on the machine. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy high browsing speeds. Handful of service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just one, while we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to enhance the performance of any kind of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
When you get one of our cloud hosting
solutions, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly using the Hepsia CP that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish functions considerably faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall grow significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven Internet sites. Since the website will connect to its database way less, the overall server load will be reduced substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs like chats and booking websites as it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the webpage by the users. Dependant upon the package you choose, these accelerators may be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server
packages shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators because it can effortlessly increase the speed of any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, therefore the server will not have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is perfect for websites designed with applications such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is a powerful accelerator which caches any type of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a website visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up an Internet site several times as it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps like chats, web browser games or social networks. It processes information in little bits the moment a user types anything, therefore it functions much faster than similar platforms where users submit large pieces of info that need time to be processed. You can choose the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators using your CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you choose your VPS server
to be integrated with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three of the most commonly used web accelerators. Varnish caches pages the first time they are visited and provides them every time the same individual visits them again, which will boost any kind of Internet site several times. Memcached is used for dynamic script applications like Joomla™
and WordPress since it caches database requests and responses, as a consequence the database hosting server won't have to process the very same webpage each and every time guests open it in case the same content should be displayed. Node.js is a platform for building real-time applications such as online games and chats. It works much faster than similar platforms since it processes the info in small parts all the time and doesn't wait for users to enter a large piece of data that shall need more time to be processed. The 3 web accelerators are provided with all Hepsia-based VPS packages and feature several hundred megabytes of dedicated memory.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package deal you choose, you will also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will decrease the hosting server load by lowering the amount of queries that have to be dealt with since it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator provides the pages if the exact same visitor opens them later and considering the fact that it does that way quicker than the server, the website visitor will be able to look through your Internet site at least several times faster. This is why Varnish is oftentimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform that will permit you to create booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in little portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive chunk of information, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar programs.
