Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load much faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The result is a considerably faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date content.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
You can unlock Varnish’s potential and boost your websites’ speed regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you’ve selected and you can activate and set up the platform with a few mouse clicks from the easy-to-use GUI offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you have lots of content on a given site and you get a lot of website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you simple 1-click controls for cancelling or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for each website and for checking detailed system logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated services that we offer and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same Upgrades section will permit you to create more instances too, in case you’d like to use Varnish with more websites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one busy site or run several Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform if you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to delete the cached data, to view a log file or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
The Varnish caching platform comes by default with each of the VPS hosting that we are offering as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run a number of websites, you will notice a great reduction in the server load and a substantially faster page load speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a little while while the users browse the web pages and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will notice the results. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey VPS plan will accomplish the very same job as a more costly one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites perform better, but you’ll also save some cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
All Linux dedicated hosting services which are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish content caching platform can be activated and administered without any effort through Hepsia’s user-friendly interface and, with no more than one single click, you can see an in-depth system log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cached data for any Internet site and much, much more. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform for a specific domain or subdomain, it will start caching the webpages accessed by the visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll witness a significantly faster site performance plus a reduced load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you run numerous Internet sites on the server.
