Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do to improve your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software that accelerates an Internet site, usually by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the common case such applications cache static content or database responses and deliver them in lieu of the server, hence improving the performance of a site drastically. The latter is possible because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will an Internet site function better, but the server load will also decrease, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less system resources. We offer 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to speed up any kind of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting providers do not offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in the event that you want to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your websites within a cloud web hosting
account from our company, you shall have 3 popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to improve the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily minimize the load of such websites significantly. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it could boost the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It is used for accommodation booking, chats and other programs where a lot of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting solution which you choose - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to include more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose one of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, you shall be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose app that caches web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them instead of the server if the visitor opens them again nearly 300% quicker. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses so that the web server doesn't need to process every request, that makes it perfect for database-driven sites, for instance ones built with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to produce web apps which work in real-time such as chats or accommodation booking websites and it processes each and every bit of info as soon as the user types it rather than waiting for massive chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated packages will enable you to choose how many instances of each accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you obtain a dedicated server
from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you'll be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the exact amount depends on the plan that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online apps such as browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info instantly as the user enters it, which makes it considerably faster than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven website, not only will the site work faster, but also the load on the web server will decrease because there shall be fewer database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire webpages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server each time the same visitor opens them later on. Because Varnish processes web requests considerably faster than any hosting server, the performance of a site using this accelerator could increase up to 300%.
