Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100%, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to enhance the browsing speed for the website visitors. Each time a visitor loads a page on a particular website, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is served as a reply. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed once again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any content is updated in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody tries to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud packages. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you’ll get an exceptionally simple-to-work-with interface, which will give you full control over the content caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can restart or remove any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular website. You can also see a detailed system log or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have many pleased website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the website accelerator and accelerate the load speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory dedicated to Varnish at no additional cost and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. If you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal right away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if plenty of data will be cached for a single website or whether the available memory will be utilized by several websites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to stop any instance, to view the system log for it or to delete the cached files using single-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the Internet sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish data caching platform is included by default with all Linux VPS packages that we offer on the condition that the virtual machine is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the performance of your sites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you run several Internet sites, you will notice a considerable reduction in the overall server load and a significantly better website load speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a while while the visitors navigate the website and once the website content has been cached, you will distinguish the effects. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive VPS plan will do the exact same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your sites work better, but you’ll also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to increase the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you will also exert full control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI. It will take only a click to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached files associated with any Internet site that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more practiced, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you host an enormous number of sites on your server and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be observable. You will just need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors load on their end. The platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers include three charge-free IPs, you will have everything you need.
