Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a much faster loading website, which means an improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is updated too, so the visitors will never see old content.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and improve your websites’ speed regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you have chosen and you can activate and set up the data caching platform with several clicks via the simple-to-use GUI offered by our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will employ the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you have a lot of content on a certain Internet site and you attract many site visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will provide you with simple 1-click controls for terminating or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache for any Internet site and for seeing exhaustive logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will allow you to activate more instances as well, if you would like to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two things can be added independently – you can cache the content of one resource-intensive website or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you’ll be able to delete the cached content, to view a log or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS servers, so if you purchase a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to make full use of the content caching platform at no extra fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the specific sever setup that you have chosen during the signup procedure, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to enhance the work of a number of resource-consuming websites, so the faster site load speeds and the lowered load on your virtual server will be noticeable. The result may not be distinguishable immediately, since Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the website content that visitors request, but soon after you activate it, you will perceive its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a lower-end server and to pay less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish content caching platform can be set up and managed with ease via Hepsia’s time and effort saving interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view an elaborate log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached content for any site and much, much more. Soon after you set up Varnish for a specific domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your site visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll perceive a considerably faster site performance as well as a decreased load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you host a large number of websites on your machine.
