Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Every time a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a substantially faster loading website, which means an immensely improved visitor experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see outdated data.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud hosting
. You can add it to your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared plans and you will get an exceptionally easy-to-use interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or cancel any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific site. You can also see an in-depth log file or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your websites and to have numerous pleased website visitors.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated services
that we are offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same section will permit you to create more instances as well, in case you would like to use the Varnish platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one regularly visited website or use several different websites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you have a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to clear the cache, to check a log or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS
You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server
packages at no additional fee, since the platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole precondition is that the Virtual Private Server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with only a few mouse clicks. Each plan features a different amount of memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is sufficient even for multiple large-scale websites. Shortly after you activate Varnish, it’ll start caching the content that your website visitors open, so you’ll notice the substantially faster webpage loading speeds and the reduced load on the virtual machine in no time. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less costly Virtual Private Server, as you won’t require that much power to sustain the proper operation of your websites even if you’ve got traffic-hungry websites with many visitors. Optimum results are accomplished if the sites that use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Hosting
If you want a powerful web hosting solution and you acquire any of the dedicated hosting
that we are offering, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to improve the performance of your Internet sites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cache or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a vast number of traffic-intensive sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle an enormous load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will come with several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
