Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can increase the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading site, which means a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date info.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your websites under a shared web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse through your hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform is available as an upgrade with all our shared hosting packages and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they aren’t directly tied to each other, so you can decide whether you want lots of memory for a single large-sized website or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of Varnish in case the websites use a dedicated IP. With the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/discontinue an instance, clear the cached contents individually for each site that employs the Varnish platform or see an elaborate log.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated account. In case you need more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same Upgrades section will enable you to create more instances as well, in case you want to use the Varnish caching platform with more websites. The two things can be added independently – you can cache the content of one single frequently visited Internet site or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of Varnish in case you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will give you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached content, to see a log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with each of our VPS servers in case you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache your site content is dependent on the particular package that you have picked, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal solely for caching purposes. This amount is enough to enhance the overall performance of numerous websites. It will take a little time for you to see the results, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors access, but soon after that you’ll notice the significantly reduced load on your virtual server and the increased website loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for websites that would usually require a more expensive web hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
When you want a more powerful web hosting solution and you purchase one of the dedicated service that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the performance of your websites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its intuitive graphical interface will allow you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cached data or to restart any instance with one click. The minimum amount of memory that the platform can employ to cache content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a huge collection of traffic-heavy sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your machine will include several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
