What exactly do web accelerators do? What could you do to be able to raise your Internet site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up a site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the hosting server. Such apps may be used for both dynamic and static websites because there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform significantly faster without using more resources. Just the opposite, this kind of a website will demand much less resources to function since the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the hosting server. Contrary to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to speed up your websites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
solutions come with three web accelerators that you can use depending on the sites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can drastically enhance the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors considerably quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs for example booking sites. Based on the web hosting plan you select, these three programs could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you shall be able to choose how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by a few Internet hosting service providers, including ours, and they can easily increase the speed of your web programs drastically.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting
account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, so it is an excellent option for any script app such as WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database server won't need to process the exact same request if many users open a page with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens a site. In case that webpage is opened again by the very same visitor, it'll be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator shall decrease the load created by your Internet sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to produce scalable web programs like hotel booking Internet sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a customer to submit a sizable piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is typing in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in 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 may employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server
from us and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the package deal you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online apps including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information immediately as the client enters it, which makes it much faster than very similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not only will the site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will reduce since there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it isn't limited to databases. Instead, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests much faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of a site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
