Varnish can enormously raise the overall performance of your web sites. Learn how to take full advantage of its power.
Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by 100%, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to accelerate the access speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor accesses a page on a given website, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested content is returned as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and in case any of them is opened once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance improvement comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is updated in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody opens them.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared package
and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account using 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 websites that you want to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, displays the total amount of data that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s user-friendly interface will enable you to deactivate or to restart any instance, to check comprehensive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, meaning more pleased site visitors and potential clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
that we are offering will allow you to use Varnish once your brand-new account has been activated, as the content caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load distribution software once your site has been launched. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine straight away. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more freedom. The Varnish caching platform will noticeably decrease the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your sites cause, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without efforts through your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/delete any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached data associated with any of your websites or to check system log files.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS web hosting packages
, so if you purchase a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make use of the data caching platform at no extra cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the particular setup that you have picked during the registration process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to optimize the performance of a handful of resource-demanding websites, so the faster web page browsing speeds and the reduced load on the server will be perceptible. The effect may not be distinguishable straight away, since the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the site content that users open, but soon after you set it up, you’ll witness its full potential. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS and to pay less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you want the most powerful hosting solution and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to boost the performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost as long as the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with interface will permit you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cached contents or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache Internet site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a large selection of regularly visited sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a gigantic system load while your website visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your server will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
