Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result is a substantially faster loading website, which leads to an immensely improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the data that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old content.
Varnish in Website Hosting
In case you host your websites in a website hosting account with us, you will be able to activate Varnish with several mouse clicks from your Control Panel. The caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our packages and you can choose the number of the sites that will use it and the total storage space that will be used for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they are not tied directly to each other, so you can choose if you need a lot of memory for one single large-sized site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can make use of the full potential of Varnish in case the websites use a dedicated IP. With the hosting Control Panel, you can quickly start/reboot/disable an instance, clear the cached files independently for each website which employs Varnish or check an in-depth system log.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish comes as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting service that we’re offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in the account. If you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will enable you to create more instances too, if you want to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one resource-absorbing site or run several different sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of Varnish if you have a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel 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 file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS service, so in case you acquire a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make full use of the data caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes based on the particular VPS package that you’ve picked during the subscription process, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the performance of several different popular Internet sites, so the better website browsing speeds and the less load on your virtual server will be perceptible. The effect may not be obvious straight away, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that users browse, but shortly after you activate it, you’ll witness its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS and to give less cash to get the very same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.
