Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. 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, as the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading website, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors won’t see out-of-date content.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our Linux shared hosting packages. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you will get a really user-friendly interface, which will grant you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular Internet site. You can also see an in-depth log file or erase the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have lots of pleased users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. In case you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will permit you to enable more instances too, if you would like to use the Varnish platform with multiple sites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of one regularly visited site or run several websites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of Varnish in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to clear the cache, to view a system log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS hosting packages if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the given plan that you’ve picked, but even with the lower-end packages, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the performance of numerous sites. It’ll take some time for you to see the effects, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors request, but shortly after that you’ll notice the substantially decreased load on the VPS and the improved site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to make use of a lower-end Virtual Private Server plan for Internet sites which would normally need a more expensive web hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish platform can be enabled and managed without any effort through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can view an in-depth system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached data associated with any site and much, much more. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform for a certain domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the web pages accessed by the website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a significantly better website performance as well as a decreased load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host an enormous number of websites on your machine.
