Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on its content. Anytime 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 accesses it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result is a considerably faster loading page, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing outdated data.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting package and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you wish to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, displays the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI will permit you to turn off or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load considerably faster, which means more pleased visitors and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your new semi-dedicated server account has been activated, as the content caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can use this workload balancing software once your site has been published online. In case you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll have more flexibility. The Varnish caching platform will seriously lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your sites produce, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform with ease via the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached content for any of your sites or to view system logs.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
You can take advantage of Varnish with all our virtual private server plans at no extra cost, since the platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole requirement is that the virtual machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks. Each package includes a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll have minimum several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple traffic-consuming sites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your website visitors browse, so you will notice the significantly faster webpage loading speeds and the reduced load on your server in no time. The caching platform will allow you to use a less high-priced server, since you won’t need that many resources to sustain the proper operation of your websites even if you own resource-intensive Internet sites with lots of visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the websites which use Varnish also use a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a more powerful web hosting solution and you buy one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to improve the work of your sites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly GUI will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache Internet site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a large collection of large-sized sites, so your server will be able to cope with an immense load while your visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your machine will include several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
