Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. 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 when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load much faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading page, which means an improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date info.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud website hosting plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface will enable you to turn off or to restart any instance, to check in-depth logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open significantly faster, meaning more satisfied website visitors and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Varnish data caching platform is part of the standard service set that you’ll get if you choose to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your Internet sites via our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this 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 features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a few sites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single website. The Varnish platform works best when you allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you an easy way of restarting any instance. In addition, you will be able to delete the cached contents with just one single click of the mouse.
Varnish in VPS Servers
The Varnish caching platform is included by default with each of the VPS plans offered by us given that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can enhance the performance of your websites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several sites, you’ll notice a substantial decrease in the server load and a much better page load speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while while the users navigate the pages and as soon as the content has been cached, you will distinguish the effects. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly VPS package will accomplish the very same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your websites perform considerably better, but you’ll also spare a certain amount of money.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
When you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to improve the overall performance of your websites at no extra charge on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with GUI will enable you to monitor system processes, to delete the cache or to reboot any instance with one single click of the mouse. The smallest amount of memory that Varnish can employ to cache content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an immense collection of resource-demanding sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a huge system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. As your server will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
