Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, sometimes even by 100 percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to boost the access speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a certain website, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is served as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is opened for a second time, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any content is modified meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody accesses them.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting
and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to turn off or to restart any instance, to see exhaustive logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open tremendously faster, which means more pleased visitors and potential clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is included in the standard set of services that you’ll acquire if you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account. You can set it up for any of your sites via our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two things are not tied to each other, you can use a couple of sites with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish caching platform performs best when you get a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with an easy way of restarting any instance. What’s more, you will be able to delete the cached content with just one single click of the mouse.
Varnish in VPS Servers
We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS servers
, so if you get a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to take advantage of the data caching platform at no extra cost. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the specific setup that you have picked during the subscription process, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to boost the overall performance of a handful of regularly visited websites, so the faster page load speeds and the reduced load will be perceptible. The result may not be apparent instantly, since Varnish will require some time to cache the content that people open, but shortly after you enable it, you will witness its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS and to pay less cash to get the very same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
If you need a more powerful web hosting solution and you acquire any of the dedicated servers
that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to improve the performance of your websites at no extra cost as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cache or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense selection of large-sized sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle an immense load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your machine will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
