Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, at times even by 100%, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical machine and to improve the browsing speed for the website visitors. Each time a visitor loads a page on a given site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is opened once again, it’s served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests significantly quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any content is edited meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to open them.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared web hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI will enable you to shut down or to reboot any instance, to check elaborate system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open much faster, meaning more happy website visitors and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Linux semi-dedicated service that we are offering will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated account has been created, since the platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software once your website has been launched. If you are in need of more system memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The Varnish platform will noticeably lower the server load that your sites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly through the Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/remove any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache associated with any of your Internet sites or to view system logs.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our VPS servers when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform is offered by default and the system memory that it will be able to use to cache your site content is dependent upon the particular package that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is enough to enhance the overall performance of multiple Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to see the effects, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors open, but soon after that you’ll notice the considerably less load on your VPS server and the accelerated website loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful package for websites which would typically need a more pricey web hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
When you want the most powerful hosting solution and you order any of the Linux dedicated service that we offer, you can use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the work of your Internet sites at no additional charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-use GUI will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cached files or to restart any instance with a click. The minimum amount of memory that the platform can use to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large collection of busy Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your website visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your machine will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
