A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up a website. Such a piece of software may function in different ways depending on the website content, but in the general situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic websites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the decreased overall load on the server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Few businesses provide web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to boost the performance of any sort of Internet site tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
When you buy one of our shared hosting plans, you'll have three popular web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it can tremendously accelerate any website because it caches the web pages that a website visitor opens for the first time and provides them each and every time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish works much faster than any web server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator shall raise significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between a site visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed predominantly for database-driven sites. Because the site will connect to its database much less, the overall hosting server load shall be minimized notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications such as chats and booking websites because it processes information in real time the instant it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you pick, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers that are obtained with the Hepsia CP. Your hosting server will also come with a few hundred megabytes of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the particular amount would be determined by the package deal that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven websites since it caches database responses, thus reducing the amount of queries that a script sends to its database. It may be employed for any script including WordPress or Joomla. Node.js is a powerful platform for developing web apps such as booking Internet sites and chats. The real-time interaction between users and a hosting server is conducted by processing smaller pieces of info as soon any user enters anything on the site. In contrast, other platforms await customers to enter loads of data before they process it, consequently they work slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire web pages and delivers them instead of the web server at a much faster rate. It's also referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any sort of Internet site.
