Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the physical server and to boost the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a certain website, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is accessed once more, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any data is edited meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone opens them.
Varnish in Website Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our website hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you’ll get a rather user-friendly GUI, which will grant you complete control over the caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or discontinue any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular Internet site. You can also view an in-depth log file or delete the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for maximum performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have many gratified website users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated servers that we offer will permit you to use Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, as the content caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load distribution software as soon as your site has been taken online. In case you are in need of more system memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server momentarily. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more freedom. The caching platform will immensely decrease the load on the machine produced by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without any effort through your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/remove any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached files for any of your Internet sites or to check system logs.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use Varnish with each of our VPS server plans at no extra charge, since the platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The one and only requirement is that the VPS server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with only a couple of clicks. Each Virtual Private Server package features a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB, which is enough even for multiple traffic-consuming sites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your site visitors browse, so you will notice the considerably faster web page loading speeds and the decreased load on the VPS in no time. Varnish will allow you to use a less costly VPS server, since you won’t require that much power to ensure the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you have large-sized websites with numerous visitors. Maximum results are accomplished if the Internet sites which use Varnish also use a dedicated IP.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
You can employ Varnish to optimize the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you’ll also exert total control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface. It will take only one click of the mouse to start or discontinue an instance or to clear the cache for any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you are more competent, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for website content caching purposes, so even in case you run numerous Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be noticeable. You’ll just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers include three cost-free IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
