Determine what precisely web accelerators are and in what way it is possible to take advantage of them to enhance your website’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software could work in different ways depending upon the site content, but in the general case all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both static and dynamic websites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't only the faster loading website, but also the smaller overall load on the machine. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors can still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of companies offer web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to enhance the performance of any sort of site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
Our website hosting solutions include 3 web accelerators which you can employ depending on the websites that you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could greatly improve the performance of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the site visitors considerably quicker than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. With respect to the Internet hosting solution you choose, these three programs might already be included or may be optional upgrades. In either case, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a handful of Internet hosting firms, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web applications drastically.
- Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated ServersOur semi-dedicated server solutions will enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most powerful web accelerators out there. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, therefore it can speed up any script-driven Internet site. You could use it for any site created with WordPress or Joomla™, for example. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it is a general-purpose caching platform that could be used for any sort of sites. Based on the content, it can improve the performance of an Internet site as much as 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to develop scalable Internet applications that process information in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes data consistently and in small parts instead of waiting for the user to submit one big chunk of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any website via the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to select how many instances of every one of them shall work and how much memory they shall employ.
- Web Accelerators in VPS ServersWe offer Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers which are acquired with the Hepsia CP. Your web server will also include a few hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount depends on the package that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites since it caches database responses, as a result reducing the amount of queries a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script including WordPress or Joomla™. Node.js is an efficient platform for building web apps like booking websites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a web server is conducted by processing small pieces of information as soon any user inputs anything on the website. In comparison, other platforms wait for users to enter a whole lot of info before they process it, as a result they function slower. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches entire web pages and provides them instead of the web server at a considerably faster rate. It's also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any type of website.
- Web Accelerators in Dedicated ServersMemcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the plan that you opt for, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will lessen the web server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be addressed because it caches database calls and responses. You'll be able to use it on every Internet site that uses an API or a database - for example, any site designed with WordPress or Joomla™. Varnish could improve the performance of any sort of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the pages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and because it does that way quicker than the web server, the website visitor shall be able to surf your Internet site at least a couple of times faster. That's why Varnish is often categorised as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will allow you to build booking websites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in tiny parts as the user fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one large piece of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar programs.
