Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Every time a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading website, which means a greatly improved visitor experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
You can unleash Varnish’s potential and boost the load speed of your sites regardless of the cloud hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can enable and set up the data caching platform with several clicks of the mouse via the user-friendly interface offered by our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got a lot of content on a particular Internet site and you win a lot of visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will offer you easy one-click buttons for turning off or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache for any Internet site and for viewing detailed system logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in the account. If you’re in need of more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same Upgrades section will enable you to add more instances too, in case you want to use Varnish with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one busy site or use several Internet sites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will give you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click, you will be able to delete the cached contents, to view a system log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS hosting when you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your websites is dependent upon the specific Virtual Private Server package that you have selected, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to optimize the overall performance of multiple websites. It’ll take a little time for you to detect the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors open, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the significantly reduced load on your virtual machine and the improved website load speed. Varnish will permit you to use a lower-end package for websites that would usually need a more expensive hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use Varnish in order to optimize the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you’ll also have complete control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It will take just one single mouse click to start or stop an instance or to clear the cached content for any website that’s using the Varnish platform and if you’re more competent, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of system memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run an enormous number of sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be evident. You will simply have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers include three free-of-charge IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
