Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches content for quicker response times. It’s occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and its users. When a visitor loads a particular page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server handles this request and delivers the requested information. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache the pages on the first visit and in case the user visits a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The increased loading speed is an end result of the significantly faster response speed that Varnish offers compared to any web server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep being served the exact same content over and over again, as any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its memory.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you wish to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to delete or to restart any instance, to check detailed system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied visitors and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the website accelerator and boost the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for Varnish at no additional cost and you will be able to activate an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal instantaneously. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of data will be cached for a single site or if the available memory will be used by multiple Internet sites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to disable any instance, to see the system log for it or to clear the cached data using one-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use it.
Varnish in VPS
We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS packages, so in case you purchase a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to use the caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the very package that you have chosen during the registration process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to enhance the overall performance of several different busy sites, so the faster site browsing speeds and the less load on your VPS server will be perceivable. The result may not be obvious right away, as the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that visitors open, but shortly after you set it up, you’ll perceive its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS and to give less money to get the exact same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Hosting
When you need the most powerful web hosting solution and you purchase one of the dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the performance of your websites at no extra charge as long as the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate graphical interface will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimal amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge number of resource-intensive sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your machine will include several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
