A web accelerator is a server-side app which speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways based on the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That's valid for both static and dynamic sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the minimized overall load on the machine. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer just one, while we offer three different ones which will enable you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site substantially.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
If you purchase one of our shared hosting
plans, you'll have three well-known web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia CP that comes with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could considerably increase the speed of any website since it caches the web pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Because Varnish works noticeably faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will improve considerably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a website visitor and a server, so it's comparable to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven websites. Considering that the site will connect to its database significantly less, the overall hosting server load will be decreased considerably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online apps including chats and booking websites since it processes data in real time the moment it is entered on the website by the users. Based on the plan you select, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you pick one of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, you'll be able to employ Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server if the website visitor opens them again close to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the server does not need to process each and every request, which makes it suitable for database-driven sites, for example ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to build web programs which operate in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each bit of info the instant the user types it instead of waiting for big chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions shall allow you to pick how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
If you get a dedicated server
from our company and you choose 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 these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the client enters it, which makes it much quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the website work faster, but also the load on the hosting server will minimize as there will be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any web server, the performance of a site using this accelerator could increase around 300%.
