Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to enhance the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a given website, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor opens and in case any of them is loaded for a second time, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance increase is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is edited meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to open them.
Varnish in Web Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux web hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI will allow you to delete or to reboot any instance, to see elaborate logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open substantially faster, which means more pleased website visitors and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Varnish content caching platform is an essential part of the basic service set that you’ll get when you choose to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your websites via our innovative Hepsia 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 Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this platform at the same time. Since these two things are not tied to each other, you can use a few Internet sites with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single website. The Varnish platform works best when you set a dedicated IP for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple means of rebooting any instance. In addition, you will be able to delete the cached data with only one single click of the mouse.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
Varnish is included by default with each of the Linux VPS web hosting packages offered by our company on the condition that the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the work of your websites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have several Internet sites, you will notice a considerable decrease in the overall server load and a tremendously faster site load speed. The platform will have to work for a while while the users browse the pages and as soon as the website content has been cached, you’ll perceive the effects. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced Virtual Private Server plan will do the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform substantially better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll obtain the Varnish platform at no additional fee and you will exert complete control over it via a truly easy-to-use interface – you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot an instance, to see a detailed system log, to delete the cached data for any Internet site and much, much more. Varnish will have several gigabytes of system memory at its disposal, so even if you run large-scale Internet sites with an immense number of visitors, you’ll notice the considerably better web page loading speeds and the lowered load on the server. This will become a fact soon after you start using Varnish, since it will need some time to cache the pages that users access. You can take full advantage of the platform’s capability if the sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that your server includes a couple of IP addresses by default, you will not need to pay anything on top of the monthly charge for the machine itself.
