Learn just what Varnish is. Know much more about web accelerators and their purpose.
Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the information that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date information.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting
and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you’d like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the total amount of content that the platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s time and effort saving GUI will permit you to shut down or to restart any instance, to view in-depth system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load significantly faster, which means more pleased website visitors and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated hosting services
that we are offering will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new account has been opened, since 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 make use of this workload distribution software as soon as your website has been published online. If you are in need of more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine straight away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll have more freedom. The Varnish caching platform will seriously lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your sites generate, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with ease through your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached files for any of your sites or to view system logs.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server
plans at no extra fee, as the caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The one and only condition is that the virtual server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a few clicks. Each Virtual Private Server plan features a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for multiple frequently visited sites. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your visitors access, so you will notice the much faster site load speeds and the reduced load on your Virtual Private Server very soon. The caching platform will permit you to use a less high-priced VPS server, as you will not need that much power to guarantee the correct operation of your websites even if you own large-size Internet sites with plenty of visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the Internet sites that use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
All dedicated web hosting
that are ordered with the custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be enabled and administered with no effort via Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI and, with no more than one click, you can check an in-depth system log, create or restart an instance, delete the cached files for any site and much, much more. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the webpages browsed by your site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you’ll observe a considerably better site performance in addition to a decreased load on the dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host numerous Internet sites on your dedicated server.
