Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can boost the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Every 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 if 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 tremendously faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a much faster loading page, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will not end up seeing outdated data.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting plan and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to shut down or to reboot any instance, to see comprehensive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load considerably faster, meaning more happy users and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is included by default with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same section will enable you to create more instances too, in case you’d like to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single resource-hungry website or run several different Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over the platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to clear the cached files, to check a log or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use Varnish with each of our VPS server packages at no extra fee, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The one and only prerequisite is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a couple of mouse clicks. Each VPS package offers a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll get minimum several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for several large-size Internet sites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your website visitors open, so you will notice the much better web page load speeds and the decreased load on the virtual server very soon. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less pricey server, since you won’t need that much power to sustain the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you’ve got large websites with numerous visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the websites which use Varnish also use a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
You can employ Varnish in order to improve the speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company 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 extra charge, but you’ll also have full control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate GUI. It will take only one single click to start or discontinue an instance or to clear the cached data for any website that is using Varnish and if you’re more competent, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you run plenty of websites on your server and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their performance will be distinguishable. You will just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors open on their end. The platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers include three cost-free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
