Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the speed of any site, sometimes even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall server load and to accelerate the access speed for the website visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a certain Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded once more, it is served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any content is changed meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone accesses them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you want to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, displays the total amount of data that the platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI will permit you to cancel or to restart any instance, to see elaborate system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load significantly faster, meaning more pleased site visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can use the website accelerator and optimize the load speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of system memory dedicated to Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you momentarily. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether lots of content will be cached for one website or if the available memory will be used by several sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to delete any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to delete the cached content using one-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS, so if you order a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make full use of the data caching platform at no additional cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes based on the very Virtual Private Server package that you’ve selected during the subscription process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to optimize the work of several large sites, so the faster page loading speeds and the reduced load on your VPS server will be discernible. The effect may not be apparent immediately, since the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the site content that users access, but shortly after you activate it, you will perceive its full potential. This caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS and to give less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be enabled and managed effortlessly via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can view an exhaustive log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached data for any website and much, much more. Soon after you enable Varnish for a certain domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages browsed by the website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a significantly faster site performance and a lowered load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host plenty of websites on the server.
