Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, based on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to increase the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a specific Internet site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed once more, it’s served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is updated meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting plan and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface will enable you to delete or to restart any instance, to see detailed logs or to clear 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 caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load significantly faster, which means more pleased website visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web app accelerator tool and improve the speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of system memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you will be able to activate an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether lots of content will be cached for one site or whether the available memory will be used by several sites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to deactivate any instance, to view the system log for it or to delete the cached data using single-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish caching platform comes by default with all VPS hosting plans that we’re offering as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your websites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you have a handful of Internet sites, you will notice an immense reduction in the overall server load and a substantially better web page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a while as the visitors navigate the web pages and once the site content has been cached, you’ll perceive the effects. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced package will accomplish the same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work much better, but you will also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to improve the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no extra charge, but you’ll also have complete control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface. It’ll take just one single mouse click to start or stop an instance or to clear the cache associated with any site that is using Varnish and in case you’re more proficient, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you host lots of Internet sites on your dedicated server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be observable. You will only have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors load on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 charge-free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
