Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading website, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish caches in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors won’t see outdated information.
Varnish in Website Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting plan and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular moment. Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface will enable you to turn off or to restart any instance, to view exhaustive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load substantially faster, which means more happy users and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated plans include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the website accelerator and accelerate the load speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory dedicated to Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of content will be cached for one website or if the available memory will be used by multiple Internet sites. Hepsia will permit you to reboot or to shut down any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to clear the cached data using single-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites which will employ it.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish data caching platform can be set up and managed without any effort from Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI and, with no more than one click, you can see an exhaustive log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cached files associated with any website and much more. Soon after you set up Varnish for a given domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the webpages loaded by the visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will witness a substantially faster website performance plus a reduced load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a huge number of sites on the server.
