Learn exactly what Varnish is. Discover more about web accelerators and their function.
Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any site, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to boost the access speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is accessed once more, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any content is modified in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody tries to open them.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting
and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, refers to the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s time and effort saving interface will permit you to stop or to restart any instance, to see exhaustive system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open substantially faster, which means more pleased visitors and potential customers.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
If you need a powerful hosting solution and you obtain any of the Linux dedicated service
that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no extra cost as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimal amount of memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large number of traffic-hungry websites, so your server will be able to handle an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your server will include several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
