Know what exactly web accelerators are and just how you are able to take advantage of them to improve your website’s overall performance.
A web accelerator is a software program that accelerates a website typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the web server. Such applications could be employed for both dynamic and static sites as there are a variety of accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of employing a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform noticeably faster without using more resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a site will need a lesser amount of resources to function since the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. In contrast to many companies that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer 3 different ones that'll allow you to speed up your sites irrespective of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host your websites within a cloud website hosting
account from our company, you shall have three popular web accelerators to select from if you would like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily lessen the load of such websites significantly. Varnish caches whole pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same site visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the web server, so it could raise the loading speed of any Internet site approximately 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that functions on the server and not inside the visitor's browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other apps where a lot of data needs to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting package that you choose - they may come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you'll be able to add more instances or more memory for every one of them.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the sites hosted within your semi-dedicated hosting
account based on the nature of the site content. Memcached, for example, caches database requests, therefore it's a superb option for any script program such as WordPress or Joomla™
. That way, the database hosting server will not need to process the very same request if multiple users open a page with the same content. Varnish is similar, but it's a general-purpose accelerator because it caches any type of content the first time a website visitor opens a site. In case this web page is opened again by the very same website visitor, it will be provided by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the server. Employing this web accelerator can lessen the load produced by your sites substantially. Last, but not least, Node.js will permit you to create scalable web programs like hotel booking sites or chats. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it does not wait for a client to submit a big piece of information, but processes whatever the user is entering in real-time. The 3 web accelerators are available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to select how many instances of each one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js come with all dedicated servers
ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP and in accordance with the package deal which you choose, you'll also have several gigabytes of dedicated memory for them. Memcached will reduce the web server load by lowering the number of queries which have to be handled as it caches database calls and responses. You will be able to use it on every website which uses an API or a database - for instance, any site built with WordPress or Joomla™
. Varnish can easily improve the performance of any type of website by caching whole pages the first time a guest opens them. The accelerator provides the webpages if the very same visitor opens them afterwards and because it does that way quicker than the hosting server, the visitor shall be able to browse your site at least a couple of times faster. That is why Varnish is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is an innovative platform which will enable you to build booking websites, web chats and other programs where real-time server-user interaction is necessary. It processes the data in little parts as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one sizeable chunk of data, which makes Node.js way quicker than similar applications.
