Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100%, 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 machine and to boost the browsing speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a specific website, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is served as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is loaded for a second time, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement 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 site visitors. If any data is modified in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud service and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your 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, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s simple-to-use graphical interface will permit you to discontinue or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied website users and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is included as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. If you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same section will allow you to add more instances as well, in case you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one traffic-intensive website or run several sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you will be able to delete the cached files, to check a system log or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with all VPS web hosting service offered by us on the condition that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage a handful of Internet sites, you will notice a serious reduction in the server load and a significantly better site loading speed. The platform will need to work for a while while the visitors navigate the website and once the content has been cached, you’ll see the result. One of the pros of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced VPS plan will do the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work significantly better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
When you want a powerful web hosting solution and you order any of the Linux dedicated servers offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to improve the performance of your Internet sites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to delete the cached files or to reboot any instance with a click. The smallest amount of memory that the platform can use to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a large number of large-size websites, so your server will be able to cope with a tremendous load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your server will include several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
