A web accelerator is a software application which speeds up a site generally by caching content and delivering it instead of the web server. Such apps may be used for both static and dynamic websites as there are different accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given Internet site will perform considerably faster without employing additional system resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a site will demand much less resources to function because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the server. Contrary to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your websites regardless of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our web hosting packages, you shall have 3 widely used web accelerators at your disposal and you will be able to access them directly using the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with our solutions. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it can greatly increase the speed of any website since it caches the web pages that a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each time that guest opens them again. Since Varnish works way quicker than any web server, the loading speed of any website using the accelerator shall grow substantially. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses between a visitor and a web server, so it is comparable to Varnish, but is employed primarily for database-driven sites. Since the site will connect to its database way less, the overall web server load will be decreased notably. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is used for scalable online apps such as chats and booking Internet sites as it processes info in real time as soon as it is entered on the website by the users. Dependant upon the plan you pick, these accelerators might be available or could be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to use Memcached, Varnish or Node.js for the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account in accordance with the nature of the website content. Memcached, for instance, caches database requests, therefore it is a superb option for any script application like WordPress or Joomla. That way, the database web server will not have to process the exact same request if multiple users open a site with the same content. Varnish is very similar, but it is a general-purpose accelerator since it caches any kind of content the first time a guest opens a page. In case that web page is opened again by the same website visitor, it shall be delivered by Varnish at a greater speed compared to the web server. Employing this web accelerator shall reduce the load created by your websites drastically. Last, but not least, Node.js shall enable you to create scalable web programs such as hotel booking websites or chats. Its advantage over comparable platforms is that it doesn't wait for a user to submit a substantial piece of data, but processes whatever the user is typing in real-time. The three web accelerators are available in the Hepsia Control Panel and you shall be able to select how many instances of each and every one of them will run and the maximum amount of memory they may use.
