What exactly do web accelerators do? What could you do to be able to boost your Internet site's load speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side app that speeds up a site. Such a piece of software can function in different ways based on the website content, but in the general situation all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites as the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the reward of using a web accelerator is not simply the faster loading site, but also the minimized overall load on the web server. That way, you could employ a lower-end hosting plan which will also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Several service providers supply web accelerators with their hosting deals and they frequently offer only one, while we offer 3 different ones that will enable you to boost the performance of any type of website tremendously.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting
plans include 3 web accelerators that you could employ depending on the sites which you would like to run. Memcached is employed to cache database or API calls and responses, which could drastically enhance the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches pages and delivers them to the visitors considerably faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time applications for example booking sites. Based on the web hosting plan you choose, these 3 apps may already be included or could be optional upgrades. Either way, you'll be able to select how many instances of each of them shall be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by a few web hosting providers, including ours, and they can easily raise the speed of your web programs substantially.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you pick one of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans, you shall be able to use Varnish, Memcached and Node.js - three effective web accelerators. Varnish is a multi-purpose application that caches websites the first time a visitor opens them and provides them instead of the web server if the website visitor opens them again up to 300% faster. Memcached caches API and database calls and responses in order that the hosting server does not need to process each and every request, which makes it ideal for database-driven websites, such as ones developed with Joomla™
or WordPress. Node.js is used to build web programs that operate in real-time like chats or accommodation booking portals and it processes each and every bit of info the moment the user enters it rather than waiting for big chunks of data to be accumulated. The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated packages will allow you to pick how many instances of each accelerator will work at a time and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are available by default with all of our dedicated servers
that are ordered with Hepsia as the web hosting Control Panel. These three web accelerators offer several gbs of dedicated memory and you can use them to speed up any kind of website. Memcached can greatly lessen the load on the server if you have script-driven Internet sites since it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the amount of database queries which the hosting server has to deal with. Node.js will enable you to develop scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it processes info the instant the end user enters it, so all the info is handled faster and in small pieces. 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 type of sites. Since it operates faster than any hosting server, it can easily speed up an Internet site at least several times and because of this, Varnish is one of the most popular web accelerators available on the market.
