Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, sometimes even by 100%, based on the content. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical machine and to increase the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a given Internet site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is returned as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and in case any of them is loaded once again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any data is modified meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody accesses them.

Varnish in Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you would like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, refers to the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to cancel or to restart any instance, to see elaborate logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load considerably faster, which means more pleased users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. If you need more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same section will allow you to add more instances as well, if you want to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-demanding site or use a number of sites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to delete the cached data, to check a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish caching platform is included by default with all Linux VPS servers that we offer as long as the virtual machine is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the performance of your websites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you have a handful of sites, you will notice an immense decrease in the server load and a significantly faster webpage load speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a while as the users browse the web pages and once the site content has been cached, you’ll observe the effect. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey VPS plan will do the exact same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work considerably better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need the most powerful website hosting solution and you buy any of the dedicated servers that we are offering, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to enhance the work of your sites at no additional fee on the condition that the server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to delete the cached contents or to restart any instance with one single click. The smallest amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous collection of large-size Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with an enormous system load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. As your dedicated server will include several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
