Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a given site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested info is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is opened again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests significantly quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is changed in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to open them.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our Linux shared hosting. You can add it to your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting packages and you will get a rather intuitive interface, which will give you full control over the caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or turn off any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a particular site. You can also check an exhaustive system log or delete the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for 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 top performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your sites and to have a lot of satisfied website users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in your account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same section will enable you to create more instances too, if you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of one resource-requiring Internet site or use several websites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of Varnish in case you use a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to delete the cache, to check a system log file or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
The Varnish content caching platform comes by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting that we offer given that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the performance of your websites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own a number of Internet sites, you’ll notice a considerable decrease in the server load and a significantly better webpage loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while while the visitors navigate the web pages and as soon as the content has been cached, you’ll observe the effect. One of the pluses of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey package will do the exact same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites work substantially better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use Varnish in order to boost the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no additional cost, but you will also exert full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface. It’ll take only one single click to start or cancel an instance or to delete the cache associated with any website that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more competent, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of virtual memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you run a lot of Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be visible. You’ll only have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers include three free-of-cost IPs, you will have everything you need.
