What precisely do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to boost your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a piece of software that speeds up a site usually by caching content and supplying it instead of the server. Such apps could be used for both dynamic and static sites as there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given site will perform substantially faster without employing additional resources. On the contrary, this kind of a site will require a lesser amount of resources to function as the web accelerator will handle most requests instead of the hosting server. Contrary to many businesses that don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer only one, we offer three different ones that'll allow you to speed up your sites whatever their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
packages come with 3 web accelerators which you can employ depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could greatly improve the performance of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the visitors considerably quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time programs such as booking websites. Depending on the web hosting solution you choose, these three programs could already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you will be able to select how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they should employ. These accelerators are provided only by several web hosting firms, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web applications significantly.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia CP that is provided with our semi-dedicated hosting
packages will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. Memcached is among the most well-known accelerators because it can speed up any API or database-driven site by caching requests and responses, consequently the hosting server will not have to process identical requests time and time again. The platform is ideal for sites built with apps such as Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress. Varnish is an efficient accelerator that caches any sort of content and is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy. It caches webpages which are opened by a site visitor for the first time and delivers them each time that same visitor opens them again. Varnish can certainly speed up a website several times as it delivers content quicker than any web server. Node.js is a platform employed for scalable real-time apps like chats, Internet browser games or social networks. It processes info in smaller pieces the moment a user types something, as a result it functions considerably faster than similar platforms where users submit sizeable parts of info that require time to be processed. You'll be able to select the number of instances and the dedicated memory for every one of the three accelerators using your CP.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and depending on the package you pick, you will also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall reduce the server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be taken care of because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - as an example, any site built with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can improve the performance of any sort of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that way quicker than the web server, the visitor shall be able to surf your website at least several times faster. That is why Varnish is occasionally categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform that will permit you to create booking websites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is required. It processes the info in tiny bits as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one massive piece of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar apps.
