Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a certain site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the site visitor opens and if any of them is accessed for a second time, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance increase is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests significantly quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is edited in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody tries to open them.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and speed up your websites irrespective of the shared hosting package that you have picked and you can activate and set up the content caching platform with several mouse clicks via the simple-to-work-with GUI offered by our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you have lots of content on a specific site and you gain numerous visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will provide you with easy 1-click buttons for turning off or restarting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with each Internet site and for seeing exhaustive system logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is offered as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you need more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same section will allow you to enable more instances too, in case you wish to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single resource-absorbing site or use a number of Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. Hepsia will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to clear the cached files, to see a log or to restart an instance.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
The Varnish platform comes by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting that we offer given that the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the work of your sites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you own a number of Internet sites, you will notice a great reduction in the server load and a considerably better website loading speed. The platform will have to work for a while while the users browse the web pages and as soon as the content has been cached, you will observe the results. One of the advantages of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced VPS package will accomplish the exact same job as a more costly one without the platform, so not only will your sites work considerably better, but you will also spare some cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use Varnish in order to speed up any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you’ll also have total control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-use graphical interface. It’ll take only one mouse click to start or discontinue an instance or to delete the cached content associated with any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more practiced, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of system memory for data caching purposes, so even if you host lots of sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be noticeable. You will only have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors open on their end. The platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that our dedicated servers come with three free-of-cost IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
