Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor accesses 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 browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a much faster loading page, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors won’t see out-of-date content.
Varnish in Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux hosting package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of data that the platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI will enable you to deactivate or to restart any instance, to check exhaustive logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load significantly faster, meaning more happy website visitors and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by our company will allow you to employ Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been created, since the platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load balancing software as soon as your site has been published on the Internet. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you will enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will enormously decrease the load on the server generated by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with ease through your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/stop any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache associated with any of your sites or to check system logs.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
The Varnish platform comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages that we offer as long as the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you run several different sites, you’ll notice a significant decrease in the overall server load and a considerably faster website load speed. The platform will need to work for a while as the users navigate the web pages and as soon as the content has been cached, you will observe the effects. One of the pros of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced VPS plan will do the same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your websites perform considerably better, but you will also save some money.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can employ Varnish in order to enhance the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no additional fee, but you’ll also have full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface. It will take just one single click to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached files for any website that is using the Varnish platform and if you’re more proficient, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of system memory for caching purposes, so even in case you host a large number of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their performance will be visible. You will just have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors load on their end. The platform performs best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
