Learn precisely what Varnish is. Know much more about web accelerators and their goal.
Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker response times. It is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor opens a particular webpage, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the necessary info. If Varnish is enabled for a certain website, it will cache the pages at the first visit and if the user accesses a cached page once more, the information will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The accelerated speed is a result of the significantly faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. Of course, this does not mean that the site visitors will continue being served the very same content again and again, because any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its memory.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting
and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface will permit you to shut down or to restart any instance, to check in-depth system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open much faster, meaning more happy site users and potential clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting
offered by us will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your brand new semi-dedicated account has been activated, since the data caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software as soon as your site has been published online. If you need more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you will have more freedom. The Varnish platform will greatly decrease the load generated by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish without any effort through your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached content associated with any of your Internet sites or to see system logs.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our virtual private server
packages at no extra charge, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The one and only precondition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each plan offers a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite sufficient even for multiple resource-demanding sites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your website visitors browse, so you’ll notice the much faster website loading speeds and the lowered load on the virtual machine very soon. Varnish will allow you to use a less expensive virtual machine, as you won’t require that much power to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of your Internet sites even if you have resource-intensive Internet sites with a lot of visitors. Best results are accomplished if the websites which use Varnish also use a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need a more powerful website hosting solution and you buy any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting
offered by us, you’ll be able to use Varnish to enhance the work of your websites at no extra cost as long as the server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate interface will allow you to keep track of system processes, to delete the cached files or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge selection of large-size websites, so your server will be able to deal with a huge system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated server will include several different dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
