Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, 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 when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish stores in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors will never see old information.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
You can make use of Varnish’s potential and optimize your websites’ load speed regardless of the shared hosting package that you have chosen and you can enable and configure the data caching platform with several clicks of the mouse through the user-friendly graphical interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to select two different things – how many websites will employ the Varnish caching platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got plenty of content on a particular site and you receive numerous website visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you easy 1-click buttons for turning off or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any site and for checking in-depth system logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you need more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will enable you to add more instances too, in case you wish to use the Varnish platform with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-requiring website or use several websites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of Varnish in case you use a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to clear the cache, to view a log file or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need a powerful website hosting solution and you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering, you can use Varnish to optimize the performance of your websites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached data or to restart any instance with one click. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a vast selection of resource-requiring sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a colossal system load while your visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. As your server will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
