Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any website, sometimes even by 100 percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to enhance the browsing speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is sent as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance improvement is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests significantly quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any content is edited in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to open them.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared web hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving GUI will enable you to delete or to reboot any instance, to view exhaustive logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open considerably faster, which means more happy website users and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. If you need more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to create more instances too, if you wish to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single traffic-intensive site or use several different websites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of Varnish if you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. Hepsia will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cached data, to see a log file or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS
You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our virtual private server packages at no additional charge, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole precondition is that the virtual machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a few clicks of the mouse. Each VPS package comes with a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you’ll have minimum several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple traffic-heavy websites. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your visitors request, so you’ll notice the tremendously faster webpage load speeds and the reduced load on the VPS very soon. The caching platform will permit you to use a less high-priced VPS, as you won’t need that many resources to ensure the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you have resource-requiring sites with multiple visitors. Best results are achieved if the websites which use Varnish use also a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Hosting
When you want a powerful web hosting solution and you get any of the Linux dedicated hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to improve the work of your sites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cached data or to reboot any instance with one click. The smallest amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a vast selection of resource-absorbing sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a massive system load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
