Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker access. It’s sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor loads a particular web page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the necessary content. If Varnish is activated for a particular site, it will cache its pages at the very first visit and if the user accesses a cached page once more, the content will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The boosted loading speed is an end result of the much faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep seeing the very same content over and over again, since any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its system memory.
Varnish in Website Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of data that the platform can store at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use graphical interface will permit you to switch off or to reboot any instance, to see in-depth system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load significantly faster, meaning more pleased website visitors and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated service offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is 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 use it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will permit you to activate more instances too, in case you want to use Varnish with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one traffic-consuming Internet site or use a number of sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to clear the cached files, to view a log or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
Varnish is included by default with each of the VPS web hosting service that we are offering on the condition that the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run several sites, you’ll notice a substantial reduction in the server load and a significantly better site load speed. The platform will have to work for a while while the visitors navigate the site and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will perceive the results. One of the pluses of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey Virtual Private Server plan will accomplish the very same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites perform considerably better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
If you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you order one of the dedicated servers offered by us, you will be able to use Varnish to optimize the overall performance of your sites at no additional fee on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with GUI will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cache or to restart any instance with one single click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for an immense selection of resource-requiring websites, so your server will be able to deal with an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your machine will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
