What exactly do web accelerators do? What could you do to increase your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is an application which accelerates a website, usually by caching its content. There are many types of accelerators, but in the common case such applications cache static content or database responses and supply them instead of the hosting server, as a consequence enhancing the performance of an Internet site drastically. The latter is achievable because accelerator apps work faster than a hosting server and not only will a site function better, but the server load shall also decrease, which will permit you to run heavy websites with less resources. We provide three web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to accelerate any kind of site. In comparison, most hosting companies don't offer any web accelerators or offer one, which limits your choice of web applications in case you'd like to use this type of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared web hosting
account from our firm, you will have 3 popular web accelerators to select from if you'd like to enhance the sites' functionality. Memcached is employed for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between an Internet site and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such Internet sites considerably. Varnish caches entire web pages the first time a website visitor opens them and provides them from there on if the same visitor opens them again. It does that much more quickly than the hosting server, so it could increase the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications that operates on the server and not inside the visitor's browser. It is used for holiday accommodation booking, chats and other apps where loads of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of these accelerators depends upon the hosting plan that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to add more instances or more memory for each one of them.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are provided by default with all our dedicated servers
which are ordered with Hepsia as the website hosting CP. These three web accelerators include several gbs of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any kind of Internet site. Memcached can substantially minimize the load on the web server if you have script-driven Internet sites because it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the number of database queries that the server has to handle. Node.js will permit you to create scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction like chats or dining booking Internet sites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes information the moment the end user enters it, so all the information is taken care of quicker and in small portions. Varnish caches entire pages the first time a visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same visitor opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any kind of sites. Because it works quicker than any hosting server, it could speed up a website at least several times and because of this, Varnish is among the most widely used web accelerators around.
