Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a website by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to an enormously improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated content.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your websites under a cloud website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse via your Control Panel. The data caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our web hosting packages and you can choose how many sites will use it and the total storage space that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they aren’t linked directly to each other, so you can choose whether you want a lot of memory for one large-sized website or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish platform if the websites use a dedicated IP. With the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/delete an instance, clear the cached data independently for each site that uses the Varnish platform or check an elaborate log.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is offered as standard with all semi-dedicated services that we offer and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish 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 your semi-dedicated server account. If you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to add more instances as well, in case you’d like to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two things can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-heavy Internet site or use a number of sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents, to view a system log or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting services, so if you acquire a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to use the caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes based on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected during the signup process, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to enhance the overall performance of a handful of resource-absorbing Internet sites, so the faster page loading speeds and the reduced load on your Virtual Private Server will be noticeable. The result may not be apparent right away, since the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the website content that users open, but soon after you set it up, you’ll feel its full capacity. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS server and to pay less money to get the very same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate the speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you will also have complete control over it through Hepsia’s intuitive interface. It’ll take just one click of the mouse to start or shut down an instance or to delete the cached files associated with any site that’s using the Varnish platform and if you’re more knowledgeable, you can also check the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of virtual memory for site content caching purposes, so even in case you host an enormous number of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be apparent. You will just need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the visitors load on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 cost-free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
