Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any site, sometimes even by 100 percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to improve the access speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a specific Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested info is sent as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is loaded once more, it is served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests significantly faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any data is modified meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to open them.
Varnish in Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to delete or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open substantially faster, which means more happy visitors and potential clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting service offered by us will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new account has been set up, as the platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can use this workload distribution software once your website has been launched online. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server right away. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will noticeably lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine generated by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without any effort through the Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/delete any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached content for any of your Internet sites or to check system log files.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Varnish with all our VPS server plans at no extra fee, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The one and only prerequisite is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Each Virtual Private Server package features a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB, which is enough even for multiple large-sized Internet sites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your website visitors open, so you will notice the considerably better webpage loading speeds and the less load on your virtual server in no time. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less pricey server, as you will not require that much power to sustain the uninterrupted operation of your sites even if you run resource-requiring sites with a lot of visitors. Maximum results are accomplished if the Internet sites that use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
