Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of faster access. It’s sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a specific webpage, the content is requested by the browser, and then the server processes this request and returns the required content. If Varnish is enabled for a specific site, it will cache its pages at the first visit and in case the visitor visits a cached page once more, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The boosted load speed is an end result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the users will keep seeing the same content again and again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its system memory.
Varnish in Shared Web Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our shared web hosting service. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages and you will get a quite user-friendly interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching platform. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can restart or shut down any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific site. You can also view an exhaustive log file or erase the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your websites and to have plenty of pleased website users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish comes by default with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish 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 semi-dedicated server account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will allow you to add more instances too, in case you would like to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of one resource-consuming Internet site or use a number of Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to clear the cached files, to see a log or to reboot an instance.
Varnish in VPS Servers
Varnish comes by default with all Linux VPS hosting service that we offer on the condition that the server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your sites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you run a number of sites, you’ll notice a significant reduction in the overall server load and a considerably faster site load speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a little while as the users navigate the pages and once the site content has been cached, you’ll see the effects. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey plan will accomplish the exact same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your sites work better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of cash.
