Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. 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 enhance the access speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a certain website, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is served as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is loaded once 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 tremendously quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any data is modified in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.
Varnish in Web Hosting
You can make use of Varnish’s full potential and improve the load speed of your websites regardless of the web hosting
package that you have chosen and you can add and set up the platform with a few clicks of the mouse using the simple-to-work-with interface offered by our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will employ Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you have lots of content on a specific website and you win many website visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you easy one-click controls for cancelling or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for any website and for viewing detailed system logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting
that we are offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to add more instances as well, in case you would like to use the Varnish platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of a single large-size Internet site or run several different websites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of Varnish in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached data, to see a log file or to restart an instance.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a powerful hosting solution and you acquire any of the Linux dedicated web hosting
that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the performance of your websites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-use interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cached content or to reboot any instance with one single click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge selection of resource-absorbing sites, so your server will be able to handle an enormous load while your site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your machine will include several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
