Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a specific site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested data is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is opened again, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any data is updated in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody accesses them.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving graphical interface will allow you to stop or to restart any instance, to see detailed system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open considerably faster, meaning more pleased visitors and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. If you need more, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same Upgrades section will allow you to activate more instances as well, in case you want to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-consuming website or run several sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of Varnish in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will give you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to clear the cache, to view a system log or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our VPS web hosting if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to use to cache your site content is dependent on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the work of numerous sites. It’ll take some time for you to distinguish the results, as the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors browse, but soon thereafter you will notice the substantially reduced load on your virtual machine and the enhanced Internet site load speed. Varnish will allow you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server package for sites which would usually require a more high-priced hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you will also exert complete control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI. It’ll take only one click to start or shut down an instance or to delete the cached content associated with any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and if you’re more advanced, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of system memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you run multiple sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be detectable. You’ll just need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-charge IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
