Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any site, at times even by 100%, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to boost the browsing speed for the website visitors. Each time a visitor accesses a page on a particular site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed for a second time, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance increase comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any content is edited in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our cloud website hosting plans. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared plans and you will get a really intuitive graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or turn off any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular website. You can also see a comprehensive log or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have a lot of gratified website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. If you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to enable more instances as well, if you’d like to use Varnish with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of a single traffic-intensive Internet site or use several sites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to clear the cached data, to check a log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS servers, so if you obtain a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the caching platform at no additional cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked on the order form, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to optimize the overall performance of several regularly visited Internet sites, so the faster page loading speeds and the lowered load on your VPS will be noticeable. The result may not be detectable right away, as the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the content that visitors request, but shortly after you activate it, you’ll observe its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS and to give less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish to enhance the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you will also have total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface. It’ll take just a click to start or deactivate an instance or to clear the cached files for any website that’s using the Varnish platform and if you’re more advanced, you can also browse 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 run a huge number of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be obvious. You’ll only need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors browse on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers come with three cost-free IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
