Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to boost the access speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor accesses a page on a certain Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is opened for a second time, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests tremendously faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any data is edited in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone attempts to open them.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting plan and if you want to use it, you can add it to your account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, displays the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI will allow you to switch off or to restart any instance, to see in-depth logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open much faster, which means more happy site visitors and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s 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 use it with any Internet site that you host in the account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to create more instances too, if you’d like to use the Varnish platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one busy Internet site or use several sites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached files, to check a system log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS web hosting plans, so in case you purchase a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make the most of the content caching platform at no extra fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the specific VPS plan that you’ve selected at signup, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to enhance the work of a number of traffic-hungry sites, so the faster website loading speeds and the less load on your Virtual Private Server will be perceivable. The result may not be distinguishable instantly, since the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the website content that visitors request, but soon after you enable it, you will perceive its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS and to give less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
If you need the most powerful website hosting solution and you purchase any of the dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to enhance the work of your sites at no extra charge on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cached data or to restart any instance with a click. The smallest amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for an immense number of traffic-hungry Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with a massive system load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
