Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can boost 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 in case the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load much faster, as the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading page, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish saves in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors will not see outdated information.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your websites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Control Panel. The platform is available as an optional upgrade with all our hosting packages and you can choose how many websites will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they are not tied directly to each other, so you can choose if you want a lot of memory for one single large-scale website or less memory for several smaller ones. You can make use of the full potential of Varnish in case the websites use a dedicated IP. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can swiftly start/reboot/shut down an instance, clear the cached files individually for each site that employs Varnish or check a detailed log.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you need more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will permit you to activate more instances too, in case you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single traffic-consuming website or run several sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you will be able to delete the cached data, to view a system log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our VPS servers if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the performance of multiple sites. It’ll take some time for you to observe the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that site visitors browse, but soon after that you’ll notice the significantly less load on your virtual machine and the enhanced website loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less powerful package for sites which would normally need a more pricey hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be configured and managed with ease through the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving interface and, with no more than one single click, you can see an in-depth log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cache associated with any website and much more. Shortly after you configure the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages loaded by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will observe a significantly faster site performance and a decreased load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run many Internet sites on the dedicated machine.
