Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to increase the browsing speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a specific website, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested information is returned as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor opens and in case any of them is accessed once again, it’s served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests substantially faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any data is modified meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to open them.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your sites under a cloud web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with a couple of clicks through your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is available as an upgrade with all our shared web hosting plans and you can choose the number of the sites that will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they aren’t tied directly to each other, so you can choose whether you need a lot of memory for one single large site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can make use of the full potential of Varnish in case the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/terminate an instance, clear the cached files individually for each website that uses the Varnish platform or view an in-depth log.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you need more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to enable more instances too, if you’d like to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one large-size website or use several Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cached content, to see a log file or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS web hosting packages if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for caching purposes. This amount is enough to improve the overall performance of multiple Internet sites. It will take a little time for you to distinguish the results, since Varnish caches the content that visitors access, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the considerably decreased load on your VPS server and the accelerated Internet site load speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to make use of a lower-end package for sites that would typically require a more expensive hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need the most powerful website hosting solution and you buy one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to boost the performance of your websites at no additional fee on the condition that the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use graphical interface will enable you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a vast selection of resource-demanding Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. Since your server will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
