Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can accelerate the speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading site, which means a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated as well, so the website visitors won’t end up seeing out-of-date data.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use Varnish’s full potential and boost the speed of your sites regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you have picked and you can add and set up the platform with a few clicks of the mouse via the easy-to-use interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you’ve got plenty of content on a specific site and you attract plenty of visitors, more memory will give you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will provide you with easy 1-click controls for cancelling or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache for each website and for seeing in-depth logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Varnish data caching platform is part of the default service set that you will acquire in case you decide to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your Internet sites via our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this platform simultaneously. As these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use several websites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single website. The Varnish platform works best if you assign a dedicated IP to the sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you an easy way of restarting any instance. On top of that, you will be able to delete the cached files with only one click of the mouse.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
Varnish is included by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we are offering as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the overall performance of your websites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you manage a number of Internet sites, you’ll notice a serious reduction in the server load and a much faster page load speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while as the visitors navigate the pages and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will see the effects. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced package will do the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your websites work much better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of money.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you want a more powerful hosting solution and you obtain any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish platform to improve the performance of your Internet sites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached data or to restart any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense collection of resource-intensive websites, so your server will be able to cope with a gigantic load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
