Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load much faster, as Varnish can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors will not end up seeing old info.
Varnish in Website Hosting
You can use Varnish’s full potential and enhance your sites’ loading speed regardless of the website hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can activate and configure the data caching platform with a couple of mouse clicks using the easy-to-use GUI offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll 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 info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you’ve got lots of content on a particular site and you receive a lot of visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy 1-click controls for discontinuing or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any website and for viewing exhaustive system logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been activated, since the caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software once your site has been launched. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The caching platform will immensely lower the load on the server that your websites cause, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with ease from your Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/discontinue any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached files associated with any of your websites or to view system log files.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS web hosting packages, so in case you order a VPS with this Control Panel, you will be able to take full advantage of the content caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the specific VPS plan that you have picked during the VPS order process, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to boost the overall performance of several different resource-absorbing Internet sites, so the faster site load speeds and the reduced load on the virtual machine will be perceivable.
