Learn precisely what Varnish is. Get to know a lot more about web accelerators and their role.
Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can improve the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a substantially faster loading website, which means a greatly improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing outdated info.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting
and if you want to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you would like to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving GUI will allow you to turn off or to restart any instance, to see in-depth system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open much faster, meaning more satisfied users and potential customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Linux semi-dedicated servers
that we are offering will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been opened, as the caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load balancing software as soon as your website has been published online. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server right away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The caching platform will considerably decrease the load on the machine caused by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform effortlessly via your Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache associated with any of your websites or to view system log files.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our VPS server
packages at no extra charge, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole requirement is that the virtual server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each VPS plan offers a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient enough even for several large-sized Internet sites. Soon after you activate Varnish, it will begin caching the content that your visitors access, so you will notice the tremendously better site load times and the decreased load on the Virtual Private Server in no time. Varnish will permit you to use a less costly virtual server, as you won’t require that much power to guarantee the proper operation of your websites even if you own traffic-heavy Internet sites with many visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the websites that use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
If you order a dedicated server
with the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll acquire the Varnish content caching platform at no extra cost and you will exert complete control over it through a really simple-to-navigate graphical interface – you’ll be able to start, to delete or to reboot an instance, to see a comprehensive system log, to delete the cached files associated with any site and much, much more. The Varnish caching platform will have several gigabytes of virtual memory at its disposal, so even if you manage large-size Internet sites with multiple visitors, you will notice the tremendously better website loading times and the less load on the machine. This will happen shortly after you start using Varnish, as it will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that visitors open. You can make the most of the platform’s potential in case the sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that your server comes with a few IPs by default, you will not have to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the server itself.
