Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any website, sometimes even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the server and to increase the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor accesses a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor opens and in case any of them is accessed once more, it is served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is edited in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to open them.
Varnish in Web Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our web hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you will get an amazingly user-friendly graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the data caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can restart or turn off any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a given website. You can also see an in-depth log file or delete the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have a lot of satisfied website visitors.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Varnish data caching platform is part of the standard service set that you’ll get in case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your sites through our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two things aren’t linked to each other, you can use several websites with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single Internet site. The Varnish caching platform works best if you get a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you a simple way of restarting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to clear the cached files with only one single mouse click.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
The Varnish caching platform is included by default with each of the VPS hosting packages offered by our company given that the virtual machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the performance of your websites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you’ve got a number of websites, you’ll notice an immense reduction in the overall server load and a considerably better web page load speed. The platform will have to work for a little while as the users browse the web pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you will distinguish the results. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey plan will do the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work considerably better, but you will also spare some cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can employ Varnish to increase the load speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no additional charge, but you will also have complete control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It’ll take just a click to start or delete an instance or to clear the cached content associated with any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more trained, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of memory for site content caching purposes, so even in case you run a lot of sites on your server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be distinguishable. You’ll just have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors browse on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers include 3 cost-free IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
