Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can increase the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Each time a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, since Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading page, which leads to an enormously improved visitor experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the users will not end up seeing out-of-date info.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting service and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different 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 want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface will allow you to cancel or to restart any instance, to see exhaustive system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied site users and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator tool and improve the load speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra cost and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you momentarily. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of content will be cached for one website or whether the memory will be utilized by different websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to stop any instance, to view the system log file for it or to delete the cached files using single-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use it.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS hosting services, so in case you order a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the content caching platform at no additional charge. Varnish can use different amounts of system memory for caching purposes depending on the particular server configuration that you have picked during the signup process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to boost the work of a handful of traffic-hungry websites, so the faster site load speeds and the less load on your virtual server will be discernible. The effect may not be distinguishable straight away, as the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the site content that users access, but shortly after you enable it, you will perceive its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS and to give less cash to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use Varnish to boost the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no additional cost, but you will also have full control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It’ll take just one single click to start or cancel an instance or to delete the cached content associated with any site that is using Varnish and in case you are more proficient, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of memory for web content caching purposes, so even in case you run a lot of Internet sites on your server and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be perceivable. You’ll only need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors access on their end. The platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
