What precisely do web accelerators do? What could you do to increase your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software application which accelerates an Internet site generally by caching content and providing it instead of the server. Such apps may be used 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 employing a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform noticeably faster without using extra resources. Just the opposite, this type of a site will demand significantly less resources to work because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the hosting server. Contrary to many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer 3 different ones that will permit you to speed up your sites regardless of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Website Hosting
We provide 3 of the most popular web accelerators with our shared website hosting
solutions and depending on what plan you'll choose when you sign up, they may already be available or they could be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it could be employed for any type of website. It caches the pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the web server each time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it could boost the speed of dynamic websites such as online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is used for scalable web programs and it works in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You shall be able to pick just how much memory these accelerators shall employ and how many instances of each will run from your Hepsia hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, so it is a superb option for any script app like WordPress or Joomla™
. This way, the database hosting server shall not need to process the exact same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any sort of content the first time a visitor opens an Internet site. In case that webpage is opened again by the same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator can lessen the load produced by your Internet sites tremendously. Last, but not least, Node.js shall permit you to produce scalable web applications such as hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over very similar platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of information, but processes whatever the customer is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available in the Hepsia CP and you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
In the event that you purchase a dedicated server
from our company and you select Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package deal that you select. Node.js is used for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the client enters it, which makes it considerably 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 website speed up, but also the load on the web server will reduce since there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it is not limited to databases. Rather, it caches whole web pages once a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them afterwards. Since Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the efficiency of a site using this accelerator may increase as much as 300%.
