Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can increase the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Whenever 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 opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the visitors will not end up seeing outdated data.
Varnish in Web Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each web hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the maximum amount of content that the platform can store at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use interface will permit you to shut down or to reboot any instance, to see elaborate logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open significantly faster, which means more happy site users and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish comes as standard with all semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you’re in need of more, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will permit you to activate more instances as well, in case you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of a single popular site or use a number of Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you’ll be able to delete the cached files, to view a system log or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with any of our VPS servers if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to utilize to cache your site content depends on the specific VPS plan that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the performance of multiple sites. It will take some time for you to observe the results, since Varnish caches the content that site visitors browse, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the substantially less load on your server and the increased website loading speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a lower-end VPS package for websites which would typically require a more high-priced hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be activated and managed without efforts from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can see a detailed system log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cache for any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you activate Varnish for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages opened by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you’ll perceive a substantially better site performance and a lowered load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host lots of sites on your machine.
