Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to accelerate the access speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is returned as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded once more, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is updated in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to access them.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting packages
. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages and you will get a very simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the data caching system. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or delete any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a specific Internet site. You can also view an elaborate system log file or delete the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have numerous pleased site users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
offered by us and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. If you’re in need of more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to add more instances as well, if you want to use Varnish with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of a single busy website or use several different Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to delete the cache, to see a system log or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
The Varnish platform is included by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages
offered by us as long as the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your websites with just a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you’ve got several different websites, you will notice a significant decrease in the overall server load and a substantially faster website load speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while while the users browse the site and as soon as the website content has been cached, you’ll notice the results. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced VPS plan will do the exact same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work much better, but you will also spare a certain amount of money.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that are ordered with the custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be activated and administered without efforts through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can check a detailed system log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached content for any site and much more. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages browsed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll witness a tremendously better website performance and a lowered load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a vast number of websites on the dedicated server.
