Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, sometimes even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to enhance the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a given website, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is returned as a reply. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and in case any of them is opened once more, it’s served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is modified meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody attempts to access them.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to see detailed logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied website visitors and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web application accelerator and enhance the speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of memory particularly for Varnish at no additional fee and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a few clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal momentarily. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose whether a lot of data will be cached for a single website or if the memory will be utilized by different sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to reboot or to disable any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached content using one-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use it.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS web hosting, so if you purchase a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to take advantage of the content caching platform at no additional cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes based on the very sever setup that you have picked during the subscription process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to enhance the overall performance of several different large Internet sites, so the faster site browsing speeds and the less load on your VPS server will be discernible. The effect may not be evident immediately, as the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that people access, but shortly after you set it up, you will feel its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to pay less money to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll acquire the Varnish content caching platform at no additional charge and you will have total control over it via a pretty time and effort saving GUI – you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot an instance, to see an elaborate system log, to delete the cached files associated with any Internet site and much, much more. The Varnish platform will have several gigabytes of virtual memory at its disposal, so even if you host resource-swallowing websites with an enormous number of visitors, you’ll notice the much faster web page load times and the reduced load on the dedicated server. This will become a fact shortly after you start using Varnish, as it will need some time to cache the website content that people request. You can take full advantage of the platform’s capability if the Internet sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that your dedicated server includes a couple of IPs by default, you won’t need to pay anything on top of your monthly fee for the machine itself.
