What precisely do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to boost your Internet site's load speed?
A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a site, usually by caching its content. There are many sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them in place of the web server, hence boosting the performance of a site greatly. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not only will a website work better, but the server load will also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any sort of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting providers do not provide any web accelerators or offer only 1, which limits your choice of web apps in case you would like to employ this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
If you host your websites in a cloud hosting
account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to choose from if you'd like to boost the sites' performance. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can decrease the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches whole webpages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the web server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any website up to 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs which operates on the web server and not in the visitor's world-wide web browser. It is employed for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose one of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - 3 effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose program which caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the visitor opens them again approximately 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the web server does not need to process every request, that makes it suitable for database-driven websites, for instance ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to create web apps which work in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes each bit of information the instant the user enters it rather than waiting for massive chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated plans will allow you to choose how many instances of each and every accelerator shall work at a time and just how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting CP. These 3 web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you can employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can drastically lessen the load on the server if you have script-driven sites because it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the number of database queries that the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall allow you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the data is managed faster and in small portions. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of sites. As it works quicker than any web server, it can speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is amongst the most widely used web accelerators out there.
