A web accelerator is a server-side program that quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading Internet site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Several businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they often offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to improve the performance of any type of website substantially.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting packages include 3 web accelerators which you could use depending on the sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can considerably boost the efficiency of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the website visitors faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications including booking websites. Depending upon the Internet hosting package you select, these three programs could already be included or could be optional upgrades. In either case, you shall be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of hosting companies, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web apps substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose one of our semi-dedicated server solutions, you will be able to take advantage of Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 powerful web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches pages the first time a 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 in order that the server doesn't have to process each request, that makes it ideal for database-driven websites, for example ones designed with Joomla or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web apps which operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each and every bit of info as soon as the user types it rather than waiting for sizeable portions of info to be accumulated. The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated packages shall permit you to select how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and how much memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you buy a dedicated server from our firm and you opt for Hepsia as the hosting CP, you shall be able to use Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your websites. All plans include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you select. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the info in real time as the client enters it, which makes it faster than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will decline because there will be considerably less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire pages once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server each time the same visitor opens them later. As Varnish processes web requests faster than any hosting server, the overall performance of an Internet site using this accelerator can increase as much as 300%.
