Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can boost the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open much faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The result is a considerably faster loading page, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors won’t see out-of-date content.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface will permit you to deactivate or to restart any instance, to check elaborate system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open considerably faster, which means more happy site visitors and potential customers.
Varnish in Dedicated Hosting
All Linux dedicated hosting which are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the server. The Varnish content caching platform can be configured and administered without efforts from Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface and, with no more than a click, you can browse a detailed log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached content associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform for a certain domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the web pages requested by the site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will observe a tremendously better site performance as well as a lowered load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you run a vast number of websites on your dedicated machine.
