Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Each time a visitor opens 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open much faster, as Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The end result is a much faster loading site, which leads to an enormously improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors won’t see outdated data.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
You can unleash Varnish’s potential and optimize your websites’ speed irrespective of the shared web hosting package that you have selected and you can add and configure the platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse using the easy-to-use interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you will be able to choose two different things – how many sites will employ Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you have a lot of content on a specific website and you draw a lot of site visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you easy 1-click controls for turning off or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any site and for viewing comprehensive logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Varnish platform is included in the default set of services that you’ll receive in case you decide to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your Internet sites through our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this platform at the same time. Since these two things aren’t bound to each other, you can use a few Internet sites with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single website. Varnish works best if you set a dedicated IP for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with a simple means of rebooting any instance. Also, you will be able to delete the cached contents with just one single click.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS web hosting when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is offered by default and the memory that it will be able to use to cache your website content is dependent upon the specific VPS package that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the overall performance of numerous websites. It will take some time for you to detect the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors request, but soon after that you will notice the considerably less load on the machine and the enhanced website load speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to make use of a lower-end Virtual Private Server plan for sites that would typically require a more high-priced hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can employ Varnish to increase the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no additional charge, but you’ll also have complete control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI. It will take only one click of the mouse to start or stop an instance or to delete the cached files associated with any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you are more experienced, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of memory for content caching purposes, so even if you host a huge number of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their performance will be visible. You will simply have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers include 3 free IPs, you will have everything you need.
