Just what do web accelerators do? What can you do to be able to increase your site's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software could function in different ways based on the site content, but in the typical situation all such applications cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites since the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading Internet site, but also the reduced overall load on the hosting server. This way, you may use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your website visitors can still enjoy high browsing speeds. Several businesses supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any sort of Internet site significantly.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
solutions come with three web accelerators which you will be able to employ depending on the Internet sites that you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably boost the efficiency of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the site visitors much faster than the web 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 upon the hosting solution you select, these three programs could already be included or might be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are supplied only by a few web hosting providers, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web applications substantially.
Web Accelerators in VPS
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all virtual private servers
that are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your server shall also include several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount depends on the package that you select. Memcached is used for script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, consequently lowering the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It could be employed for any script such as WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an effective platform for building web programs like booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a server is carried out by processing little pieces of info as soon any user inputs anything on the website. By comparison, other platforms wait for customers to input a considerable amount of information before they process it, thus they function more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator which caches whole webpages and provides them instead of the server at a considerably faster rate. It's also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can speed up any type of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the plan which you select, you shall also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached shall decrease the web server load by lowering the number of queries that have to be addressed since it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every site that uses an API or a database - as an example, any website designed with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily boost the performance of any kind of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator delivers the webpages if the same visitor opens them afterwards and since it does that way quicker than the server, the visitor will be able to look through your website at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will permit you to create booking websites, web chats and other programs in which real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the information in small parts as the user fills different boxes and does not wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one substantial chunk of info, which makes Node.js considerably faster than similar applications.
