Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of faster response times. It’s occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a website visitor loads a particular page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the server processes this browser request and returns the requested content. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache its pages on the first request and in case the visitor visits a cached page once again, the content will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the server. The increased speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep being served the very same content again and again, as any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its system memory.
Varnish in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and improve your sites’ speed irrespective of the website hosting plan that you have picked and you can add and configure the platform with several clicks from the intuitive interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to choose two different things – how many sites will employ the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got plenty of content on a certain Internet site and you gain plenty of visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple 1-click controls for cancelling or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any site and for seeing exhaustive logs.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the website accelerator tool and accelerate any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantaneously. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether plenty of data will be cached for one site or whether the available memory will be utilized by multiple websites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to delete any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to delete the cached content using one-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites which will employ it.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS hosting service in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to use to cache your website content is dependent upon the specific Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal exclusively for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to enhance the performance of numerous sites. It will take a little time for you to notice the results, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors open, but soon thereafter you’ll notice the considerably reduced load on your virtual machine and the enhanced site load speed. Varnish will allow you to use a lower-end package for Internet sites that would normally need a more costly web hosting solution.
