Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses 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 accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors won’t see outdated information.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud hosting services
. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans and you will get an amazingly easy-to-use GUI, which will give you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or stop any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a certain website. You can also view an exhaustive log or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have plenty of pleased website users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated hosting services
that we’re offering will allow you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated account has been opened, as the content caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this load distribution software as soon as your site has been launched. In case you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The caching platform will significantly reduce the server load caused by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without efforts via your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache for any of your Internet sites or to see system log files.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS web hosting services
, so in case you buy a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to use the data caching platform at no extra charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes depending on the specific plan that you’ve selected during the signup process, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to optimize the work of several different resource-intensive sites, so the faster web page browsing speeds and the decreased load on your VPS will be perceivable. The effect may not be visible straight away, as the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the site content that users access, but shortly after you enable it, you’ll perceive its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS and to give less money to get the very same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.
