Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of quicker access. It is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a site visitor loads a specific web page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the needed info. If Varnish is activated for a site, it will cache its pages on the first request and if the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the content will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The boosted loading speed is an end result of the significantly faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the users will continue seeing the very same content again and again, as any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its system memory.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud web hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the 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, displays the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface will allow you to turn off or to reboot any instance, to view detailed system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load much faster, meaning more pleased users and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Varnish data caching platform is part of the basic set of services that you will get in case you decide to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your Internet sites via our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. Since these two features are not bound to each other, you can use a few sites with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single web site. Varnish works best when you get a dedicated IP for the sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with a simple way of rebooting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with just one single click.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our Linux VPS hosting if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is available by default and the memory that it will be able to use to cache your site content depends upon the specific VPS plan that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to optimize the performance of multiple sites. It’ll take a little time for you to detect the results, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors open, but soon after that you’ll notice the substantially decreased load on the server and the increased Internet site loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less powerful plan for Internet sites which would normally require a more costly web hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated web hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the overall performance of your websites at no extra fee on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will permit you to keep an eye on platform processes, to delete the cached contents or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The smallest amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a large number of busy sites, so your server will be able to deal with a tremendous load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
