Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Whenever 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 loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since Varnish can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result is a substantially faster loading website, which means an enormously improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface will enable you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to see elaborate logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load tremendously faster, meaning more happy website users and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is included by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same section will allow you to create more instances too, if you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one frequently visited Internet site or use several websites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click, you will be able to clear the cached data, to see a system log or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS web hosting packages when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites depends upon the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to enhance the work of multiple websites. It will take some time for you to observe the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors browse, but soon after that you’ll notice the significantly lowered load on your VPS and the enhanced website loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful VPS package for sites which would usually require a more high-priced web hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can employ Varnish to boost the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional fee, but you will also have full control over it via Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface. It’ll take just one mouse click to start or terminate an instance or to delete the cached files associated with any website that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more advanced, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of system memory for data caching purposes, so even if you run lots of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be visible. You’ll just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our dedicated servers include three cost-free IPs, you will have everything you need.
