Understand what precisely web accelerators are and ways in which it is possible to take advantage of them to supercharge your website’s performance.
A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up a website typically by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such apps may be employed for both static and dynamic sites because there are different accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The benefit of employing a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform substantially faster without employing more system resources. Quite the opposite, such a site will demand significantly less resources to work since the web accelerator will deal with most requests instead of the hosting server. Contrary to many businesses that do not offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer one, we offer 3 different ones which will enable you to speed up your websites irrespective of their kind or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators along with our shared hosting
services and depending on what plan you shall pick when you sign up, they may already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it may be used for any type of site. It caches the web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them at a faster speed compared to the server every time that a website visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic Internet sites such as online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web apps and it works in real-time, which makes it suitable for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etcetera. You will be able to select the amount of memory these accelerators will employ and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
All VPS servers
that are incorporated with the Hepsia Control Panel come with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js already included and you will get several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for them by default. Varnish, that is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches web pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them in case that guest opens them again, therefore the web server won't need to perform any action. Due to the fact that Varnish operates much faster than any server, an Internet site employing this accelerator shall function several times quicker. Memcached is a platform that caches database calls and responses and it's employed for WordPress, Joomla™
and other script-driven applications which store their content within a database. Node.js is a highly effective platform for creating scalable web applications. Any data on an Internet site which employs Node.js is processed in real time, which makes it a fantastic choice for dining and accommodation booking Internet sites, web-based chats, Internet browser games, and so on.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you select Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js readily available for speeding up your websites. Memcached will be able to lessen the load on the hosting server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is great for dynamic sites built with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is often called an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be employed to speed up any type of website because it provides the cached content faster than the server each time a visitor opens the same webpage again. You can employ Node.js for online programs which call for real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking websites. Different from other platforms which wait for the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the info piece by piece as the user fills each box, so it functions much faster and more effectively. All dedicated server
solutions feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
