Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Each time 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 accesses it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load much faster, since Varnish can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading site, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date content.
Varnish in Website Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, refers to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving interface will permit you to terminate or to restart any instance, to see comprehensive system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load much faster, which means more happy website users and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web accelerator tool and accelerate the speed of any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for Varnish at no extra charge and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you immediately. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of data will be cached for one site or if the memory will be utilized by multiple websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to reboot or to deactivate any instance, to check the system log associated with it or to delete the cached content using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites that will employ it.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS web hosting, so if you order a server with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the data caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes depending on the very VPS plan that you have picked during the VPS order process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to optimize the performance of several different resource-heavy sites, so the better website loading speeds and the less load on the machine will be noticeable. The result may not be obvious instantly, as Varnish will require some time to cache the site content that users open, but soon after you activate it, you’ll feel its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server and to give less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll get Varnish at no extra cost and you will exert complete control over it via a rather simple-to-work-with interface – you’ll be able to start, to remove or to reboot an instance, to browse an exhaustive log, to delete the cache for any website and much more. The Varnish platform will have several GB of system memory at its disposal, so even if you have traffic-consuming Internet sites with lots of visitors, you’ll notice the considerably better website load times and the lowered load. This will happen soon after you start using Varnish, as it will need some time to cache the website content that people access. You can get the most out of the platform’s capacity if the Internet sites that are using it also use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that your dedicated server comes with a couple of IP addresses by default, you won’t need to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the server itself.
