Determine what precisely web accelerators are and ways in which you can make the most of them to improve your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is a software program which speeds up a site typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such applications can be employed for both dynamic and static Internet sites because there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The best thing about using a web accelerator is that a given site will perform considerably faster without using additional resources. On the contrary, such a website will demand a lesser amount of resources to operate since the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the hosting server. Contrary to many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
If you purchase one of our hosting packages, you will have 3 well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP which is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it can tremendously increase the speed of any site as it caches the web pages a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish works faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will improve significantly. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is used predominantly for database-driven Internet sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load shall be reduced considerably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online programs including chats and booking sites because it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersYou shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™. That way, the database server shall not need to process exactly the same request if a number of users open a site with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. If that web page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it shall be provided by Varnish at a much higher speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can reduce the load generated by your Internet sites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js will enable you to build scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the user is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersIn the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated in our packages by default and offer dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to build scalable apps where real-time interaction is required - booking Internet sites, online games, chats, and so forth. It processes the data in small portions as the end user is entering it, thus it works quicker than other platforms that wait for the users to input one sizeable bit of information. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same site visitor opens the same page again, which could speed any site several times due to the fact that Varnish functions a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it is suitable for script-driven websites like WordPress and Joomla™. This web accelerator can easily decrease the load on your server since it'll reduce the number of database queries which your websites make.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Varnish and Node.js are available with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package you pick, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the hosting server load by lowering the number of queries that need to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - for instance, any website developed with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish could enhance the performance of any kind of Internet site by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the very same visitor opens them later and considering the fact that it does that way quicker than the web server, the visitor shall be able to look through your site at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will enable you to create booking websites, web chats and other applications in which real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the data in little portions as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable piece of info, which makes Node.js considerably quicker than similar apps.
