Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can increase the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Each time 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 accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load significantly faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved website 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 too, so the visitors won’t end up seeing old info.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, which means more satisfied users and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated packages offered by our company will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand-new account is active, as the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this workload distribution software once your website has been launched. If you need more memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in an instant. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will enjoy more freedom. The caching platform will significantly lower the server load that your sites produce, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly from the Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/remove any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached data associated with any of your websites or to view system logs.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS hosting, so in case you purchase a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make full use of the content caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes based on the specific VPS plan that you’ve chosen during the server order process, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to enhance the overall performance of a handful of large-sized Internet sites, so the better web page loading speeds and the lowered load on your virtual machine will be discernible. The effect may not be distinguishable straight away, since the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the site content that visitors browse, but shortly after you set it up, you will perceive its full potential. This caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful server and to pay less cash to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use Varnish in order to improve the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with us if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no extra fee, but you will also exert complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface. It’ll take only one single click of the mouse to start or disable an instance or to clear the cached content for any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more experienced, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of system memory for caching purposes, so even in case you run a lot of websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be visible. You’ll only have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers come with three free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
