A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a website typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such apps may be employed for both dynamic and static Internet sites since there are a variety of accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site shall perform considerably faster without using additional resources. Just the opposite, such a website will demand much less resources to operate as the web accelerator will handle most requests rather than the server. Unlike many businesses which don't offer web accelerators with their solutions or offer only one, we offer three different ones which will permit you to speed up your websites irrespective of their type or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
We offer three of the most popular web accelerators together with our shared hosting packages and depending on what plan you will choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they might be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most well-known one of them and it could be used for any sort of site. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is used to cache API and database calls, so it can easily boost the speed of dynamic websites like online stores, community forums or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web applications and it works in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, and many others. You shall be able to pick how much memory these accelerators will use and how many instances of each and every one shall run from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted inside your semi-dedicated server account in accordance with the nature of the site content. Memcached, in particular, caches database requests, therefore it's a great option for any script application such as WordPress or Joomla. This way, the database web server won't have to process exactly the same request if multiple users open a website with the same content. Varnish is comparable, but it is a general-purpose accelerator as it caches any sort of content the first time a guest opens an Internet site. If this webpage is opened again by the very same guest, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the hosting server. Using this web accelerator can reduce the load generated by your websites significantly. Last, but not least, Node.js shall allow you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a big piece of data, but processes whatever the customer is inputting in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they can use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are provided with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and based on the plan which you select, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the server load by lowering the amount of queries that need to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on any Internet site that uses an API or a database - for example, any site created with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish could boost the performance of any kind of website by caching whole webpages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that considerably quicker than the server, the visitor will be able to surf your website at least a few times faster. That's why Varnish is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an advanced platform which will enable you to build booking sites, web chats and other applications where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in little portions as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large chunk of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
