Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Each time a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load much faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading website, which leads to an immensely improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the information that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will not end up seeing old content.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared hosting services. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages and you will get a rather easy-to-use GUI, which will grant you full control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or shut down any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a certain site. You can also check an elaborate system log or delete the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your websites and to have plenty of satisfied site visitors.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated services that we offer will allow you to employ Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated account has been created, as the caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been published to the web. In case you need more memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll enjoy more flexibility. The platform will significantly reduce the load on the semi-dedicated server that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort through your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached content associated with any of your websites or to see system logs.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our Linux VPS hosting services in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The content caching platform comes by default and the memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the particular plan that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB of memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the performance of numerous Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to see the results, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors open, but shortly after that you will notice the substantially reduced load on your server and the enhanced website loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to make use of a less powerful package for websites that would typically need a more expensive web hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need the most powerful hosting solution and you acquire one of the dedicated web hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use Varnish to optimize the performance of your Internet sites at no extra fee as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate interface will permit you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached files or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an enormous number of heavy websites, so your server will be able to handle a colossal load while your visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
