Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to improve the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a certain Internet site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is served as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is opened for a second time, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests tremendously faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any data is modified in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to access them.
Varnish in Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our Linux hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages and you’ll get an amazingly intuitive interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can restart or discontinue any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a specific website. You can also check a comprehensive log or erase the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for data 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 optimum performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have plenty of satisfied website users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator tool and optimize the loading speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether a lot of content will be cached for one site or if the memory will be utilized by different Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to stop any instance, to check the system log for it or to clear the cached files using one-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use it.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS web hosting services, so if you buy a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to make full use of the data caching platform at no additional cost. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for caching purposes based on the very plan that you’ve picked on the order page, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to improve the work of a handful of busy Internet sites, so the faster site loading speeds and the decreased load on your server will be noticeable. The result may not be distinguishable instantly, as Varnish will need some time to cache the content that people open, but soon after you activate it, you will perceive its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to pay less money to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish content caching platform can be enabled and managed effortlessly via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can browse an exhaustive system log, add or restart an instance, clear the cache associated with any site and much, much more. Shortly after you configure the Varnish platform for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the web pages opened by the website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a substantially better site performance in addition to a decreased load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you host a large number of sites on your dedicated server.
