Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical machine and to improve the access speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a given Internet site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested information is served as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is accessed for a second time, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any data is updated meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone accesses them.
Varnish in Shared Website Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared website hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to discontinue or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open much faster, which means more happy users and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated packages offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been created, as the content caching platform is offered 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 balancing software as soon as your website has been launched. If you need more memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more versatility. The caching platform will considerably lower the load on the machine generated by your sites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish with no effort from your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached files associated with any of your Internet sites or to view system logs.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our VPS hosting packages when you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered by default and the memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the particular package that you’ve picked, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal solely for caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the performance of numerous sites. It’ll take some time for you to detect the effects, as Varnish caches the content that visitors access, but shortly thereafter you will notice the substantially decreased load on your VPS and the accelerated site loading speed. Varnish will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for sites that would normally require a more expensive web hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use Varnish to enhance the speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you will also have complete control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface. It’ll take just one mouse click to start or discontinue an instance or to delete the cached data for any Internet site that’s using Varnish and if you are more knowledgeable, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run an enormous number of Internet sites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be perceivable. You’ll only need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers come with three charge-free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
