A web accelerator is a program that accelerates a website, typically by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the common case such apps cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the web server, thus improving the performance of an Internet site greatly. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a hosting server and not simply will a website operate better, but the server load shall also minimize, which will allow you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will enable you to accelerate any type of Internet site. In comparison, most web hosting firms do not offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications if you would like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Website Hosting
In case you acquire one of our website hosting plans, you'll have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you shall be able to access them directly through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with our plans. Varnish is one of the most well-known ones and it could tremendously speed up any Internet site because it caches the web pages which a visitor opens for the first time and provides them each time that guest opens them again. Given that Varnish functions much faster than any server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator will improve significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Because the site shall connect to its database significantly less, the overall server load shall be reduced notably. The last accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications including chats and booking sites as it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Depending on the plan you select, these accelerators may be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Varnish and Node.js are offered with all dedicated servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in accordance with the package that you opt for, you'll also have several gbs of dedicated memory for them. Memcached can reduce the server load by lowering the amount of queries which have to be addressed as it caches database calls and responses. You shall be able to use it on every site which uses an API or a database - as an example, any website built with WordPress or Joomla. Varnish can easily enhance the performance of any sort of Internet site by caching whole webpages the first time a visitor opens them. The accelerator delivers the web pages if the very same visitor opens them later on and given that it does that considerably faster than the web server, the visitor will be able to look through your website at least a couple of times faster. This is why Varnish is often referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. Node.js is a sophisticated platform which will enable you to build booking websites, web chats and other apps where real-time server-user interaction is needed. It processes the information in tiny bits as the client fills different boxes and doesn't wait for all boxes to be filled and processed as one big piece of information, which makes Node.js much faster than similar apps.
