A web accelerator is a software which accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are many kinds of accelerators, but in the general case this sort of applications cache static content or database responses and supply them in lieu of the hosting server, therefore boosting the performance of a site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator programs work faster than a server and not simply will a site operate better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy Internet sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting solutions, which will allow you to accelerate any type of site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses don't offer any web accelerators or offer just one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use such software.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Website Hosting
We offer 3 of the most well-known web accelerators together with our cloud website hosting services and depending on what plan you shall choose when you sign up, they might already be available or they may be an optional upgrade. Varnish is the most popular one of them and it may be employed for any sort of Internet site. It caches the web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them at a much faster speed compared to the hosting server each and every time that a visitor opens them again. Memcached is employed to cache API and database calls, so it can easily increase the speed of dynamic sites such as online stores, discussion boards or social networks. Node.js is employed for scalable web programs and it operates in real-time, which makes it ideal for server-side data processing - chats, browser games, booking portals, etc. You shall be able to choose the amount of memory these accelerators shall use and how many instances of each one shall run from your Hepsia website hosting CP.
Web Accelerators in VPS Web Hosting
In the event that you obtain a virtual private server with the Hepsia CP, you shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated within our plans by default and feature dedicated memory of several hundred MBs. Node.js is used to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is necessary - booking sites, online flash games, chats, etcetera. It processes the information in smaller portions as the end user is entering it, thus it functions faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one large part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same guest opens the same page again, which can speed any website several times due to the fact that Varnish functions a lot quicker than any server. Memcached is employed for caching API and database responses, so it's suitable for script-driven sites such as WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator can reduce the load on your web server because it shall lower the number of database queries your Internet sites make.
