Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of quicker access. It is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a site visitor opens a given page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the server processes this request and sends back the required info. If Varnish is enabled for a particular site, it will cache the pages at the first request and if the visitor opens a cached page again, the data will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The increased load speed is a result of the substantially faster response time that Varnish offers as compared to any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the users will keep seeing the exact same content over and over again, as any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its memory.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of data that the platform can store at any given moment. Hepsia’s time and effort saving graphical interface will permit you to delete or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load much faster, meaning more happy website users and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting service come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the website accelerator tool and increase the load speed of any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you will be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantly. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose whether plenty of content will be cached for a single site or whether the available memory will be utilized by multiple sites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to cancel any instance, to view the system log file for it or to delete the cached data using 1-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites which will use it.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with each of our VPS web hosting service if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your websites is dependent on the specific Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to improve the performance of numerous Internet sites. It’ll take some time for you to distinguish the results, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors open, but after that you’ll notice the significantly less load on the Virtual Private Server and the enhanced website load speed. Varnish will allow you to use a less powerful plan for websites that would typically require a more costly hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will obtain the Varnish content caching platform at no additional charge and you’ll have complete control over it via a really time and effort saving graphical interface – you’ll be able to start, to disable or to reboot an instance, to see a detailed log, to clear the cached data associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Varnish will have several gigabytes of memory at its disposal, so even if you run high-demand Internet sites with many visitors, you’ll notice the tremendously faster web page loading speeds and the reduced load on your server. This will become a fact shortly after you begin using Varnish, as it will require some time to cache the site content that visitors request. You can take full advantage of the platform’s capabilities if the websites that are using it also use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that your dedicated server includes a few IP addresses by default, you won’t have to pay anything on top of your monthly fee for the server itself.
