Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the speed of any website, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor accesses a page on a specific site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is delivered as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is accessed again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any data is modified meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to access them.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud service and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface will permit you to turn off or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open considerably faster, which means more happy site users and prospective customers.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated service include Varnish by default, so you can use the web accelerator tool and increase the load speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you will be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal right away. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of data will be cached for one site or if the available memory will be used by different sites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to stop any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to clear the cached content using single-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will employ it.
Varnish in VPS Servers
The Varnish caching platform comes by default with each of the VPS service that we are offering on the condition that the server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the performance of your websites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you manage a handful of Internet sites, you’ll notice a significant decrease in the server load and a tremendously better web page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a little while while the users browse the web pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you will see the results. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced package will do the very same job as a more costly one without the platform, so not only will your websites work significantly better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
If you want a powerful hosting solution and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated service offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to improve the work of your Internet sites at no additional cost on the condition that the server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use interface will allow you to monitor system processes, to delete the cached files or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The minimum amount of memory that the platform can use to cache website content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an immense collection of heavy websites, so your server will be able to cope with an immense load while your site visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. Since your server will come with several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
