Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of quicker access. It is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a visitor loads a particular web page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the server handles this request and returns the requested data. If Varnish is activated for a specific website, it will cache the pages at the very first visit and in case the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The improved load speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will continue seeing the exact same content over and over again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its memory.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use Varnish’s potential and accelerate your sites’ loading speed regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you’ve picked and you can enable and configure the data caching platform with a few clicks through the user-friendly GUI offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you have plenty of content on a given site and you draw lots of visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will provide you with easy 1-click buttons for terminating or restarting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any Internet site and for checking comprehensive logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer will allow you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been created, since the data caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can use this workload distribution software once your site has been taken online. If you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you will have more versatility. The Varnish platform will immensely reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine generated by your sites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without effort from your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache for any of your Internet sites or to check system logs.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
You can use Varnish with any of our virtual private server packages at no additional fee, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with just a few clicks of the mouse. Each Virtual Private Server package features a different amount of memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is enough even for several resource-demanding websites. Soon after you set up Varnish, it will start caching the content that your visitors open, so you’ll notice the considerably faster site loading times and the decreased load on the Virtual Private Server in no time. Varnish will allow you to use a less costly virtual server, as you won’t require that much power to guarantee the proper operation of your sites even if you manage resource-consuming sites with numerous visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the websites which use Varnish use also a dedicated IP.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish caching platform can be set up and administered without effort via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface and, with no more than one click, you can view an in-depth system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached data associated with any website and much, much more. Shortly after you enable Varnish for a given domain or subdomain, it will start caching the webpages accessed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you’ll perceive a considerably better website performance as well as a decreased load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run an enormous number of sites on the server.
