Determine what exactly web accelerators are and the way you can take full advantage of them to boost your website’s efficiency.
A web accelerator is a server-side program that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the hosting server. That way, you'll be able to use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors could still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of companies supply web accelerators with their hosting packages and they typically offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will permit you to boost the performance of any kind of site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
packages come with 3 web accelerators that you can employ depending on the websites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can tremendously improve the functionality of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and provides them to the site 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 applications such as booking sites. Depending on the Internet hosting package you pick, these 3 programs could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to select how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by a few Internet hosting firms, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web applications considerably.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our semi-dedicated server
packages will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is one of the most famous accelerators since it can easily accelerate any API or database-driven Internet site by caching requests and responses, as a result the web server shall not have to process identical requests again and again. The platform is ideal for websites designed with apps such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator which caches any kind of content and is also frequently called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches pages that are opened by a site visitor for the first time and provides them each and every time that same site visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly accelerate a website several times as it delivers content quicker than any server. Node.js is a platform used for scalable real-time programs such as chats, browser games or social networks. It processes data in little parts the instant a user types anything, so it functions much more quickly than similar platforms where users submit massive chunks of info that need time to be processed. You can select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for each of the 3 accelerators using your Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to employ Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All three accelerators are included inside our solutions by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the data in small pieces as the user is entering it, therefore it functions more quickly than other platforms that wait for the users to submit one sizeable bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it when the same guest opens the same page again, which can certainly speed any website several times as Varnish functions a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it is appropriate for script-driven Internet sites like WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can lessen the load on your server as it will decrease the amount of database queries that your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you obtain a dedicated server
from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info immediately as the client enters it, which makes it considerably faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the web server will minimize because there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole pages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
