Learn precisely what Varnish is. Know a lot more about web accelerators and their role.
Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any website, sometimes even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall server load and to boost the browsing speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor loads a page on a specific website, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested information is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is loaded once again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests significantly quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any data is changed in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to access them.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting
and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI will permit you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to check in-depth logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load considerably faster, which means more pleased website users and prospective clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Varnish platform is part of the default set of services that you will acquire when you decide to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server
account. You can set it up for any of your Internet sites via our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. Since these two features are not linked to each other, you can use several Internet sites with the default amount of memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single website. The Varnish platform performs best when you set a dedicated IP for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with a simple way of rebooting any instance. What’s more, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with only one click.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with each of our VPS servers
in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to use to cache your site content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to improve the overall performance of numerous websites. It will take some time for you to detect the results, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors open, but shortly after that you’ll notice the substantially reduced load on your VPS and the improved website loading speed. Varnish will permit you to make use of a lower-end plan for Internet sites which would normally need a more pricey web hosting solution.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
When you want a powerful web hosting solution and you order one of the dedicated servers
offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to improve the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will enable you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one click. The minimal amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache website content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an immense number of large-size Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a massive load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your machine will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
