A web accelerator is a piece of software which speeds up a site usually by caching content and providing it instead of the web server. Such programs can be used for both dynamic and static sites since there are various accelerators which can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given site shall perform considerably faster without using more system resources. Quite the opposite, this kind of a website will require a lesser amount of resources to operate because the web accelerator will take care of most requests instead of the web server. Contrary to many firms that don't offer web accelerators with their plans or offer only one, we offer three different ones that'll enable you to speed up your websites regardless of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
packages come with three web accelerators that you can employ depending on the sites which you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which could significantly improve the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator that caches pages and delivers them to the website visitors much quicker than the hosting server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time applications such as booking sites. Depending upon the web hosting plan you select, these three apps may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In either case, you will be able to pick how many instances of each one of them will be at your disposal and what amount of memory they ought to employ. These accelerators are supplied only by a few hosting providers, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web apps considerably.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server
with the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your Internet sites. All three accelerators are incorporated inside our plans by default and offer dedicated memory of several hundred megabytes. Node.js is used to develop scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking websites, online flash games, chats, and so forth. It processes the information in small parts as the end user is entering it, as a result it functions much faster than other platforms that wait for the end users to enter one sizeable piece of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator that works as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it if the same website visitor opens the same page again, which could speed any website several times due to the fact that Varnish works quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it is suitable for script-driven websites such as WordPress and Joomla™
. This web accelerator will be able to decrease the load on your server because it will reduced the number of database queries which your websites make.
