Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Anytime 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. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading website, which means an enormously improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors won’t end up seeing old info.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and improve the speed of your websites regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you have picked and you can enable and configure the data caching platform with several clicks using the intuitive graphical interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got a lot of content on a certain Internet site and you draw lots of website visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will offer you simple one-click buttons for deactivating or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any site and for viewing exhaustive system logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you need more, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will allow you to enable more instances too, in case you would like to use Varnish with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of one frequently visited site or use several sites with the default memory. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. Hepsia will give you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to delete the cache, to view a system log file or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
The Varnish platform comes by default with each of the VPS web hosting plans that we are offering given that the server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you run a number of Internet sites, you will notice a serious reduction in the overall server load and a significantly faster website loading speed. The Varnish caching 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’ll distinguish the result. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced package will do the very same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites perform substantially better, but you’ll also spare a certain amount of cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be configured and managed with ease via Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI and, with no more than one mouse click, you can check an exhaustive system log, add or restart an instance, clear the cache for any website and much more. Shortly after you configure Varnish for a certain domain or subdomain, it will start caching the webpages accessed by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will witness a considerably better website performance as well as a lowered load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you run a huge number of Internet sites on the machine.
