A web accelerator is a software application which accelerates a website typically by caching content and supplying it instead of the hosting server. Such applications may be employed for both dynamic and static sites because there are various accelerators that can cache both static content and database calls and responses. The main advantage of using a web accelerator is that a given website shall perform substantially faster without using more resources. Quite the opposite, this type of a website will demand significantly less resources to work as the web accelerator will tackle most requests rather than the web server. In contrast to many firms which don't offer web accelerators with their packages or offer just one, we offer three different ones which will enable you to speed up your websites irrespective of their style or content.
Web Accelerators in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans come with three web accelerators that you can employ depending on the Internet sites which you would like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly improve the efficiency of dynamic Internet sites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors considerably faster than the server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform used for scalable real-time programs including booking websites. With respect to the Internet hosting plan you pick, these 3 apps may already be included or might be optional upgrades. In any case, you shall be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will be at your disposal and how much memory they should employ. These accelerators are offered only by a few web hosting companies, including ours, and they could boost the speed of your web applications significantly.
Web Accelerators in VPS Servers
In the event that you get a VPS server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js for your websites. All three accelerators are included within our packages by default and feature dedicated memory of a few hundred MBs. Node.js is used to create scalable applications where real-time interaction is needed - booking Internet sites, online flash games, chats, etc. It processes the information in little pieces as the user is entering it, therefore it works much faster than other platforms which wait for the end users to enter one big part of info. Varnish is a general-purpose accelerator which functions as an HTTP proxy. It caches content and delivers it in the event that the same visitor opens the same webpage again, which can easily speed any website several times because Varnish operates a lot quicker than any hosting server. Memcached is used for caching API and database responses, so it's ideal for script-driven sites like WordPress and Joomla. This web accelerator will be able to lessen the load on your hosting server since it will lower the number of database queries that your sites make.
