Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall server load and to boost the browsing speed for the website visitors. Each time a visitor accesses a page on a given website, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is delivered as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests significantly faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any data is edited meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages and you will get an amazingly easy-to-use graphical interface, which will give you full control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or turn off any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a given Internet site. You can also view an in-depth log or erase the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your websites and to have numerous happy visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new account has been created, as the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can use this load balancing software once you launch your site. If you’re in need of more memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server instantly. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The Varnish platform will greatly reduce the server load that your websites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without any effort through your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content associated with any of your websites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting, so if you get a server with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make the most of the data caching platform at no extra cost. Varnish can use different amounts of memory for caching purposes based on the very Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked on the order form, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to boost the performance of a number of resource-requiring sites, so the better page browsing speeds and the reduced load on your server will be perceivable. The result may not be observable straight away, as Varnish will need some time to cache the content that users request, but shortly after you set it up, you will feel its full capacity. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to pay less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish to optimize the loading speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no additional cost, but you’ll also exert full control over it via Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface. It’ll take just one single click of the mouse to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached data for any Internet site that’s using Varnish and in case you’re more knowledgeable, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of system memory for website content caching purposes, so even in case you host a vast number of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be obvious. You’ll simply have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the website visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers come with three free-of-cost IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
