Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for quicker response times. It’s sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a visitor opens a certain web page, its content is requested by the browser, and then the server handles this request and returns the necessary content. If Varnish is enabled for a given website, it will cache the pages at the first visit and if the user opens a cached page again, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The improved load speed is a result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will keep being served the exact same content again and again, because any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its system memory.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud web hosting
. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared plans and you will get an exceptionally simple-to-work-with GUI, which will grant you complete control over the data caching system. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or stop any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a specific Internet site. You can also view an exhaustive log or clear the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have a lot of happy visitors.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is included as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting
offered by us and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same section will enable you to activate more instances too, if you want to use the Varnish platform with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one single large-size Internet site or use several websites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cache, to check a log file or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with all VPS hosting services
that we are offering given that the server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your sites with just a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have several sites, you’ll notice a considerable decrease in the server load and a significantly better web page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while as the users browse the site and as soon as the website content has been cached, you’ll see the effects. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites perform much better, but you’ll also save some cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use Varnish in order to enhance the speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server
with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you’ll also exert full control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI. It’ll take only one single click to start or discontinue an instance or to clear the cached data for any website that’s using Varnish and in case you’re more advanced, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for site content caching purposes, so even in case you host multiple sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be perceivable. You will just have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors open on their end. The platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers include three free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
