What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do to increase your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a software application that speeds up an Internet site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such applications could be used for both static and dynamic sites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given website will perform considerably faster without employing extra resources. Quite the opposite, such a site will demand significantly less resources to function as the web accelerator will tackle most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only 1, we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to speed up your sites regardless of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
In case you buy one of our cloud hosting
solutions, you shall have three widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia CP that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly accelerate any website as it caches the pages a visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that visitor opens them again. Since Varnish operates noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will increase noticeably. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it's much like Varnish, but is employed largely for database-driven sites. Since the Internet site shall connect to its database way less, the overall server load shall be minimized significantly. The last accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online applications like chats and booking sites since it processes information in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the exact amount would be determined by the plan that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven sites since it caches database responses, as a result reducing the number of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script like WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing web programs including booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a server is performed by processing little pieces of information as soon any user inputs anything on the website. By comparison, other platforms wait for customers to enter a whole lot of information before they process it, therefore they operate slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches whole webpages and delivers them instead of the server at a considerably faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can effortlessly speed up any type of Internet site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you get a dedicated server
from us and you choose Hepsia as the hosting CP, you will 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 actual amount depends on the package deal that you choose. Node.js is used for scalable online programs like browser games or hotel booking and it processes the information right away as the user enters it, which makes it considerably quicker than comparable platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you employ it for a script-driven site, not simply will the website speed up, but also the load on the web server will decrease as there shall 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 websites once a website visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server whenever the same visitor opens them later. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the overall performance of a website using this accelerator can increase around 300%.
