Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do in order to raise your Internet site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side program that accelerates a website. Such a piece of software may function in different ways based on the site content, but in the general case all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the server. This is valid for both dynamic and static Internet sites as the cached content can be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the smaller overall load on the server. That way, you can use a lower-end hosting solution that'll also cost less while your website visitors could still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting plans and they frequently offer only 1, while we offer three different ones that will enable you to improve the performance of any type of website tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
When you host your websites within a hosting
account from our firm, you will have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you'd like to boost the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven websites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such websites considerably. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can easily boost the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time apps that functions on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's Internet browser. It's employed for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where plenty of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting solution that you pick - they could come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
We provide Memcached, Node.js and Varnish with all VPS servers
which are purchased with the Hepsia Control Panel. Your server will also come with several hundred MBs of dedicated memory for these accelerators and the actual amount would be determined by the package that you choose. Memcached is employed for script-driven Internet sites as it caches database responses, thus lowering the number of queries a script sends to its database. It can be used for any script like WordPress or Joomla™
. Node.js is an efficient platform for developing web apps like booking sites and chats. The real-time interaction between end users and a hosting server is carried out by processing little parts of info as soon any user enters anything on the website. By comparison, other platforms wait for customers to enter loads of information before they process it, as a result they work more slowly. Varnish is a multi-purpose accelerator that caches entire web pages and provides them instead of the server at a considerably quicker rate. It is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it can easily speed up any type of site.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you order a dedicated server
from our company and you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you will be able to employ Node.js, Memcached and Varnish for your sites. All plans come with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these accelerators and the specific amount depends on the package that you choose. Node.js is employed for scalable online applications including browser games or hotel booking and it processes the data in real time as the user enters it, which makes it much quicker than similar platforms. Memcached caches database and API responses, so if you use it for a script-driven Internet site, not simply will the Internet site speed up, but also the load on the hosting server will decline as there shall be less database queries to be processed. Varnish also caches content, but it's not at all limited to databases. Rather, it caches entire web pages once a website visitor opens them and delivers them instead of the web server each and every time the same visitor opens them later on. Due to the fact that Varnish processes web requests much faster than any server, the performance of a website using this accelerator may increase nearly 300%.
