Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of quicker access. It’s occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a browser. When a site visitor accesses a specific webpage, its content is requested by the browser, and then the web server handles this browser request and delivers the requested content. If Varnish is enabled for a particular website, it will cache the pages at the first request and in case the user visits a cached page again, the content will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The boosted load speed is a result of the much faster response time that Varnish offers compared to any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep being served the same content over and over again, because any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its memory.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting packages. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting plans and you’ll get a truly simple-to-use interface, which will give you full control over the data caching system. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can restart or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific website. You can also view an exhaustive system log or delete the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have plenty of happy site users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated packages offered by our company and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allowance. 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 too, if you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-consuming site or run several different sites with the default memory. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you’ll be able to clear the cached files, to view a log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
The Varnish content caching platform comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting that we’re offering on the condition that the machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got a handful of sites, you will notice a significant decrease in the server load and a much faster page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while as the visitors navigate the site and once the site content has been cached, you will distinguish the results. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced VPS plan will accomplish the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your websites perform significantly better, but you’ll also save some money.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish content caching platform can be enabled and managed effortlessly via Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one click, you can view a comprehensive log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cache for any website and much more. Shortly after you configure Varnish for a specific domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the webpages accessed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will perceive a tremendously faster website performance and a decreased load on your dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you host an immense number of Internet sites on your server.
