Learn precisely what Varnish is. Get to know more about web accelerators and their purpose.
Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can boost the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a much faster loading site, which leads to an improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated information.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting plan
and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface will permit you to remove or to reboot any instance, to view exhaustive system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open much faster, which means more happy website visitors and potential clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans
come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the web app accelerator and enhance the speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal momentarily. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if lots of content will be cached for a single site or whether the available memory will be utilized by several Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to reboot or to cancel any instance, to see the system log for it or to delete the cached content using single-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use it.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
You can use Varnish in order to accelerate any website that is hosted on a dedicated server
with our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you’ll also exert complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface. It’ll take only one mouse click to start or stop an instance or to clear the cached content for any website that is using the Varnish platform and in case you are more trained, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of memory for site content caching purposes, so even in case you run many sites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the difference in their performance will be observable. You’ll simply have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers include three free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
