Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the speed of any website, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to enhance the access speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor accesses a page on a specific Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is returned as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed once more, it’s served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance increase comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is edited meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody opens them.
Varnish in Web Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our web hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get an exceptionally user-friendly interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or stop any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a certain site. You can also check a comprehensive system log or erase the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimal 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 a lot of gratified website users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Varnish platform is an essential part of the standard service set that you’ll receive when you choose to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your sites via our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the sites that can use this platform simultaneously. As these two things aren’t linked to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single web site. The Varnish caching platform performs best if you use a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple way of rebooting any instance. What’s more, you will be able to delete the cached data with only one click.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
The Varnish platform is included by default with all Linux VPS hosting packages that we’re offering given that the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the performance of your websites with just a few mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several different websites, you will notice a substantial decrease in the server load and a significantly better web page load speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a little while while the users navigate the site and once the content has been cached, you will notice the result. One of the pluses of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly plan will accomplish the same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your sites perform better, but you’ll also spare a certain amount of cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you get any of the Linux dedicated web hosting that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to optimize the performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will permit you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to reboot any instance with a click. The minimum amount of memory that the caching platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an enormous number of resource-heavy Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with a gigantic system load while your site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with several dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
