Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means an enormously improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the content that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated content.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud web hosting. You can add it to your hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages and you’ll get a really user-friendly GUI, which will give you complete control over the data caching system. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or delete any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific Internet site. You can also check a detailed system log or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have a lot of pleased users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in your account. In case you’re in need of more, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to add more instances as well, in case you’d like to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two things can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single large-scale Internet site or run several Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cache, to see a system log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
The Varnish platform is included by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting that we are offering given that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the work of your sites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several different websites, you will notice a noticeable decrease in the server load and a considerably better website load speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a while while the visitors navigate the pages and once the website content has been cached, you will notice the results. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the exact same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work much better, but you’ll also spare a certain amount of money.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you want the most powerful hosting solution and you acquire any of the Linux dedicated web hosting offered by us, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your sites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with one single click. The minimum amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache website content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a large selection of heavy Internet sites, so your server will be able to deal with a substantial load while your visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. As your server will include a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
