Find out what precisely web accelerators are and just how you can make the most of them to boost your site’s performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side application that accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can operate in different ways depending upon the website content, but in the typical case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites since the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the benefit of using a web accelerator is not just the faster loading website, but also the minimized overall load on the machine. That way, you may employ a lower-end hosting plan that'll also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of businesses offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only one, while we offer three different ones which will permit you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site noticeably.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
plans feature 3 web accelerators that you will be able to use depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly improve the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the visitors much faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs for example booking sites. Depending upon the hosting plan you choose, these three applications could already be included or could be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of hosting firms, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web programs substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
plans will allow you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most effective web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, so it could easily accelerate any script-driven website. You may use it for any website designed with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that may be used for any sort of sites. Depending on the content, it could increase the performance of a site up to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system employed to create scalable Internet applications which process information in real time for example booking portals. Its advantage is that unlike comparable platforms, it processes data continuously and in small portions rather than waiting for the user to submit one big chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any site from the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will work and how much memory they shall employ.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
In the event that you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you will 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 Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic Internet sites built with WordPress, Joomla™
and comparable scripts. Varnish, which is known as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire webpages the first time a new website visitor opens them. It may be employed to speed up any type of Internet site since it provides the cached content way quicker than the server any time a visitor opens the same page again. You can employ Node.js for online applications that demand real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking sites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to enter everything on a form, Node.js processes the data gradually as the user fills each and every box, so it operates considerably faster and more effectively. All dedicated server
solutions come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
