Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Every time a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, since Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading website, which means a much-improved browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the information that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing out-of-date info.
Varnish in Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the total amount of content that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s time and effort saving GUI will enable you to terminate or to restart any instance, to view exhaustive logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open much faster, which means more satisfied site visitors and prospective clients.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
You can employ Varnish in order to speed up any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no extra fee, but you’ll also exert complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It will take just one single click of the mouse to start or deactivate an instance or to clear the cached data for any site that is using Varnish and if you are more trained, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of system memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you run multiple websites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be noticeable. You’ll simply need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors access on their end. The platform works best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 charge-free IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
