Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can boost the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing old content.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud website hosting services. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages and you will get an amazingly intuitive graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular website. You can also see an in-depth log file or clear the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your sites and to have many satisfied website visitors.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated services come with Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the website accelerator and enhance the loading speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 MB of system memory dedicated to Varnish at no extra charge and you will be able to enable an instance with no more than a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal momentarily. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if lots of content will be cached for a single site or if the memory will be used by multiple websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to deactivate any instance, to see the system log associated with it or to delete the cached content using one-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites which will employ it.
Varnish in VPS
You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with any of our VPS if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your websites depends upon the specific package that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the work of numerous websites. It will take some time for you to observe the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors open, but after that you will notice the considerably less load on your Virtual Private Server and the enhanced site load speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for Internet sites that would normally need a more costly web hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Hosting
You can use Varnish to enhance the speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no additional charge, but you’ll also have complete control over it through Hepsia’s user-friendly graphical interface. It’ll take just one single mouse click to start or disable an instance or to delete the cached files for any Internet site that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more practiced, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of virtual memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you host numerous Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their performance will be perceivable. You will just need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors open on their end. The platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers come with 3 free IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
