Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can boost the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result is a considerably faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the data that Varnish caches in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date content.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud hosting
. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting plans and you will get an exceptionally easy-to-use interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or cancel any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a certain website. You can also view an exhaustive log or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your sites and to have lots of pleased website visitors.
Varnish in VPS Servers
Varnish comes by default with each of the VPS servers
that we are offering on the condition that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the work of your sites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you manage a number of sites, you’ll notice a great decrease in the overall server load and a substantially better web page loading speed. The platform will need to work for a while while the visitors browse the pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you’ll observe the effects. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly Virtual Private Server package will do the same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites perform much better, but you will also save a certain amount of money.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
When you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you acquire one of the dedicated servers
offered by us, you will be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to optimize the performance of your Internet sites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached data or to restart any instance with a click. The minimal amount of memory that the platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast collection of heavy sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a colossal load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your server will include several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
