Just what do web accelerators do? What could you do to be able to raise your website's loading speed?
A web accelerator is a server-side application that quickens an Internet site. Such a piece of software may operate in different ways depending on the website content, but in the typical situation all such apps cache content and deliver it instead of the web server. That's valid for both dynamic and static sites as the cached content may be simple text or database responses and the benefit of employing a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading site, but also the lessened overall load on the web server. That way, you can employ a lower-end hosting package which will also cost less while your website visitors will be able to still enjoy superior browsing speeds. Handful of service providers offer web accelerators with their hosting packages and they usually offer just 1, while we offer 3 different ones which will allow you to improve the performance of any kind of website significantly.
Web Accelerators in Hosting
packages feature three web accelerators which you will be able to use depending on the Internet sites that you'd like to run. Memcached is used to cache database or API calls and responses, which can significantly improve the functionality of dynamic websites. Varnish is a popular HTTP accelerator which caches web pages and provides them to the site visitors considerably faster than the web server after the first time they open them. Node.js is an event-driven platform employed for scalable real-time apps for example booking websites. Based on the Internet hosting package you choose, these 3 apps may already be included or could be optional upgrades. Regardless, you'll be able to pick how many instances of each one of them shall be at your disposal and how much memory they ought to use. These accelerators are provided only by a handful of hosting companies, including ours, and they can raise the speed of your web apps drastically.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
Memcached, Node.js and Varnish are offered by default with all of our dedicated servers
which are ordered with Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel. These 3 web accelerators include several gigabytes of dedicated memory and you could employ them to speed up any kind of site. Memcached can drastically lessen the load on the server if you have script-driven websites as it caches database responses, therefore it lessens the number of database queries which the hosting server has to deal with. Node.js will allow you to build scalable apps with real-time user-server interaction including chats or dining booking websites. Its advantage over similar platforms is that it processes data as soon as the end user enters it, so all the data is handled faster and in small bits. Varnish caches entire webpages the first time a website visitor opens them and delivers them each time the same guest opens them again, which makes it a universal accelerator for any sort of Internet sites. Since it operates faster than any web server, it could speed up a website at least several times and for that reason, Varnish is one of the most widely used web accelerators on the market.
