Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of faster access. It’s occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a visitor accesses a certain web page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the server handles this request and delivers the needed content. If Varnish is enabled for a certain site, it will cache the pages on the very first request and if the user visits a cached page again, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The improved loading speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep being served the very same content again and again, since any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its system memory.
Varnish in Web Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux web hosting service and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface will allow you to stop or to reboot any instance, to view elaborate logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open significantly faster, which means more happy site visitors and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your new account has been activated, since the caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software as soon as your website has been published on the Internet. If you are in need of more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine right away. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you will enjoy more versatility. The Varnish platform will greatly decrease the load produced by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with ease from your Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/delete any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached data for any of your sites or to see system log files.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting, so in case you obtain a server with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take full advantage of the caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for content caching purposes depending on the very setup that you have picked during the order process, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to improve the overall performance of a handful of traffic-consuming Internet sites, so the better site loading speeds and the lowered server load will be discernible. The effect may not be detectable right away, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the site content that people open, but soon after you enable it, you’ll perceive its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS and to give less cash to get the very same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a powerful hosting solution and you obtain any of the dedicated hosting services offered by us, you will be able to use Varnish to improve the overall performance of your Internet sites at no extra fee as long as the server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its intuitive interface will enable you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached contents or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an immense collection of traffic-heavy Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle an immense system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
