Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. 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 handled by the web server and the page will open much faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading page, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated data.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface will allow you to terminate or to restart any instance, to check detailed logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open substantially faster, meaning more satisfied site users and potential clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated hosting packages that we’re offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same Upgrades section will enable you to enable more instances too, in case you’d like to use Varnish with multiple websites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single large-size website or run several different sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to clear the cached content, to view a system log or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
You can use Varnish with all our virtual private server plans at no additional cost, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The sole prerequisite is that the virtual machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a few mouse clicks. Each Virtual Private Server plan features a different amount of memory for content caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple resource-consuming sites. Soon after you activate Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your visitors access, so you will notice the tremendously better Internet site loading speeds and the decreased load on the Virtual Private Server in no time. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less pricey virtual machine, as you will not require that much power to sustain the uninterrupted operation of your sites even if you run heavy-traffic Internet sites with lots of visitors. Best results are accomplished if the Internet sites that use Varnish also use a dedicated IP.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will acquire the Varnish data caching platform at no extra cost and you will have complete control over it via an amazingly easy-to-navigate graphical interface – you will be able to start, to disable or to restart an instance, to check an exhaustive log, to clear the cached data associated with any site and much more. Varnish will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you manage high-demand Internet sites with plenty of visitors, you will notice the tremendously faster web page load times and the decreased load on the dedicated machine. This will happen shortly after you start using Varnish, as it will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that visitors request. You can take full advantage of the platform’s potential in case the Internet sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that your server comes with several IPs by default, you will not have to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the machine itself.
