Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can boost the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. 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 in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, since the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud web hosting packages. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you will get a quite easy-to-use interface, which will grant you complete control over the data caching system. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a certain website. You can also see an exhaustive system log or clear the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can assign 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 users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web application accelerator tool and enhance the loading speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for Varnish at no additional cost and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated plans. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of data will be cached for one website or whether the memory will be utilized by different sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to reboot or to stop any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to delete the cached content using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites which will employ it.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no extra cost, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a couple of mouse clicks. Each Virtual Private Server plan offers a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-absorbing sites. Soon after you set up Varnish, it will begin caching the content that your website visitors request, so you will notice the significantly better site loading times and the less load in no time. The platform will allow you to use a less costly virtual machine, as you won’t require that many resources to sustain the uninterrupted operation of your Internet sites even if you’ve got high-demand Internet sites with a lot of visitors. Maximum results are achieved if the sites that use Varnish use also a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish caching platform can be enabled and administered without effort from Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate GUI and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view a detailed system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached data associated with any Internet site and much more. Soon after you set up Varnish for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the webpages opened by the website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will perceive a considerably better website performance as well as a reduced load on the server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you host a vast number of sites on the server.
