Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading website, which means a greatly improved browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will not see old info.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, displays the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface will enable you to discontinue or to reboot any instance, to see comprehensive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load significantly faster, meaning more pleased visitors and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator and optimize the load speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal right away. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of content will be cached for a single website or if the memory will be utilized by different websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to shut down any instance, to check the system log file for it or to clear the cached files using one-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP for the websites that will use it.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with each of our VPS web hosting plans in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to use to cache your website content depends on the specific package that you have selected, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB of memory at your disposal exclusively for content caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the performance of numerous sites. It will take a little time for you to detect the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that site visitors access, but shortly after that you’ll notice the considerably lowered load on your Virtual Private Server and the accelerated Internet site load speed. Varnish will allow you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server package for websites which would typically require a more pricey hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
When you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you obtain any of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to boost the overall performance of your sites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use graphical interface will allow you to keep track of system processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with a click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge collection of popular sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a colossal system load while your website visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. As your machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
