What exactly do web accelerators do? What can you do in order to raise your site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side application that speeds up an Internet site. Such a piece of software could operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the reward of employing a web accelerator is not only the faster loading site, but also the reduced overall load on the machine. This way, you could use a lower-end hosting solution that will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Handful of firms provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they often offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any type of Internet site considerably.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
solutions come with three web accelerators which you can employ depending on the websites which you'd like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could considerably improve the functionality of dynamic sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and delivers them to the visitors much quicker 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 sites. Based on the web hosting solution you choose, these three apps may already be included or might be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to choose how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should use. These accelerators are offered only by several Internet hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily boost the speed of your web applications significantly.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
solutions will permit you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - 3 of the most efficient web accelerators available on the market. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses, thus it can increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site. You could use it for any website created with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also often called an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which can be employed for any type of sites. Depending on the content, it can easily improve the performance of a site up to 300%. Node.js is a sophisticated system used to create scalable Internet applications that process data in real time for instance booking portals. Its advantage is that different from similar platforms, it processes information constantly and in small portions instead of waiting for the user to submit one sizeable piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any site through the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to choose how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
If you pick Hepsia as the hosting CP for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js at your disposal for increasing the speed of your websites. Memcached will be able to minimize the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven sites make because it caches database responses. This web accelerator is ideal for dynamic sites created with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches whole websites the first time a new visitor opens them. It may be employed to accelerate any kind of website because it delivers the cached content way quicker than the server each time a guest opens the same site again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online apps which call for real-time server-client interaction such as online chats or booking Internet sites. Different from other platforms that await the user to fill everything on a form, Node.js processes the data piece by piece as the user fills every box, so it operates faster and more efficiently. All dedicated server
packages feature several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these three web accelerators.
