Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, as it can increase the speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall server load and to accelerate the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor loads a page on a given site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is returned as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is opened again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any content is changed in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to open them.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account via 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 depends on the number of the sites that you wish to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the platform can store at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface will permit you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to view elaborate logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load substantially faster, meaning more pleased website users and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated hosting services that we’re offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been activated, as the platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this load distribution software once your site has been launched. If you need more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in an instant. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will enjoy more flexibility. The platform will seriously lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your sites cause, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform without effort from the Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache for any of your websites or to view system log files.
Varnish in VPS
You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The content caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites depends on the given VPS plan that you’ve selected, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to boost the work of multiple sites. It will take some time for you to see the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that site visitors browse, but after that you’ll notice the significantly lowered load on your VPS server and the increased website loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end package for Internet sites which would normally need a more expensive web hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Hosting
You can use Varnish in order to enhance the loading speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you’ll also have total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI. It’ll take only one single click of the mouse to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached data for any Internet site that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more sophisticated, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you host numerous websites on your server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their performance will be detectable. You’ll simply need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever content the visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers come with three charge-free IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
