Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can increase the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Every 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 if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load significantly faster, since Varnish can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading website, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing outdated info.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, shows the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s user-friendly GUI will allow you to stop or to reboot any instance, to check exhaustive logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load substantially faster, meaning more happy visitors and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you need more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same Upgrades section will permit you to create more instances too, in case you want to use Varnish with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of one popular site or use a number of sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to clear the cached data, to check a log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting, so if you buy a server with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the content caching platform at no additional fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for caching purposes depending on the particular sever setup that you’ve chosen on the order form, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to improve the performance of a handful of traffic-hungry sites, so the better site browsing speeds and the lowered load on the Virtual Private Server will be discernible. The result may not be observable momentarily, since the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that people browse, but soon after you enable it, you will observe its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful server and to give less money to get the exact same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.
