Understand what specifically web accelerators are and ways in which you'll be able to make the most of them to boost your website’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such applications may be employed for both dynamic and static websites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform significantly faster without employing more resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a website will need a lesser amount of resources to function because the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. In contrast to many firms which do not offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
When you purchase one of our cloud website hosting
plans, you'll have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our packages. Varnish is one of the most widely used ones and it could considerably speed up any website because it caches the web pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Given that Varnish operates noticeably faster than any server, the loading speed of any Internet site using the accelerator shall grow noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a hosting server, so it is similar to Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven websites. Because the Internet site shall connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load will be reduced substantially. The third accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking Internet sites because it processes information in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the plan you choose, these accelerators might be available or might be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account depending on the nature of the website content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, so it is a fantastic choice for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database web server will not have to process the same request if many users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a site. If that page is opened again by the same guest, it'll be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Using this web accelerator can lessen the load created by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web apps like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a user to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the client is entering in real-time. The three web accelerators are available within the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators feature several gbs of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any kind of Internet site. Memcached can drastically minimize the load on the hosting server if you have script-driven websites because it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the number of database queries that the web server has to handle. Node.js shall allow you to develop scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes information as soon as the end user enters it, so all the info is handled swifter and in small bits. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same website visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Because it functions faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and as a result, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
