What precisely do web accelerators do? What could you do to increase your website's load speed?
A web accelerator is a software that speeds up a website, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the typical case such apps cache static content or database responses and deliver them instead of the server, therefore increasing the performance of an Internet site significantly. The latter can be done because accelerator apps work faster than a web server and not simply will an Internet site operate better, but the server load will also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy Internet sites with less system resources. We offer three web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to speed up any sort of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps in the event that you'd like to employ this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
In case you host your websites in a website hosting
account from our firm, you shall have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can minimize the load of such sites substantially. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much faster than the server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time programs that works on the hosting server and not inside the visitor's web browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where lots of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends upon the hosting plan which you select - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In each case, you will be able to add more instances or more memory for each of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you pick one of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, you'll be able to work with Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three efficient web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application which caches webpages the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the hosting server if the guest opens them again nearly 300% more quickly. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses to ensure the hosting server does not have to process every request, which makes it perfect for database-driven sites, for instance ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is employed to develop web apps which operate in real-time including chats or accommodation booking sites and it processes every bit of data the instant the user types it instead of waiting for big chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our semi-dedicated solutions will permit you to select how many instances of every accelerator shall work at a time and the amount of memory they will use.
Web Accelerators in VPS
If you get a virtual private server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your sites. All 3 accelerators are integrated in our plans by default and come with dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is employed to develop scalable programs where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the info in small portions as the end user is entering it, as a result it operates faster than other platforms that wait for the users to input one massive piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same site visitor opens the same website again, which can speed any Internet site several times because Varnish operates faster than any server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, consequently it's ideal for script-driven Internet sites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator can minimize the load on your hosting server since it will reduce the amount of database queries that your sites make.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers
which are ordered with Hepsia as the Internet hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators come with several gbs of dedicated memory and you may employ them to speed up any type of site. Memcached can significantly minimize the load on the web server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, therefore it decreases the number of database queries the web server has to deal with. Node.js shall permit you to create scalable programs with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info the instant the user enters it, so all the data is handled swifter and in small parts. Varnish caches entire Internet pages the first time a site visitor opens them and provides them every time the same website visitor opens them again, that makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of websites. Because it functions quicker than any server, it can easily speed up a site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators out there.
