What precisely do web accelerators do? What can you do in order to improve your website's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up a site typically by caching content and delivering it instead of the hosting server. Such apps can be employed for both dynamic and static websites because there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform significantly faster without employing additional system resources. On the contrary, such a website will need much less resources to operate as the web accelerator will deal with most requests rather than the server. In contrast to many firms that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your Internet sites whatever their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you purchase one of our shared hosting
solutions, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could significantly speed up any Internet site since it caches the pages which a website visitor opens for the first time and delivers them every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish works faster than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will improve substantially. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is used mainly for database-driven sites. Because the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall web server load shall be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking sites because it processes info in real time the moment it is entered on the site by the users. Dependant upon the package you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
solutions shall allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most powerful web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can increase the speed of any script-driven website. You may use it for any website built with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform which can be employed for any type of sites. Depending on the content, it can boost the performance of a site as much as 300%. Node.js is an advanced system employed to develop scalable Internet apps which process info in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes data consistently and in small pieces as opposed to waiting for the user to submit one sizeable piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any website via the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to pick how many instances of every one of them shall work and how much memory they shall employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for accelerating your Internet sites. Memcached will be able to minimize the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven websites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is perfect for dynamic sites designed with WordPress, Joomla™
and similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new guest opens them. It could be used to accelerate any type of site because it provides the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server any time a website visitor opens the same site again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online programs which demand real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. Unlike other platforms which await the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills each box, so it operates considerably quicker and more effectively. All dedicated server
solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to those three web accelerators.
