Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall server load and to boost the access speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a given Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is served as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor opens and if any of them is accessed once again, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests significantly quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is updated meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface will enable you to remove or to reboot any instance, to see in-depth system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, which means more happy site visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is an essential part of the default set of services that you will receive when you choose to host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your sites through our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. Since these two features are not linked to each other, you can use several instances with the default amount of memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single site. The Varnish platform works best if you set a dedicated IP for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple means of restarting any instance. Also, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with just one mouse click.

Varnish in VPS

You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with any of our VPS in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the given VPS plan that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal only for caching purposes. This amount is enough to improve the work of numerous websites. It’ll take some time for you to notice the effects, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors browse, but shortly thereafter you will notice the considerably decreased load on the VPS and the improved website load speed. Varnish will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server plan for Internet sites which would normally require a more high-priced web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish to increase the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with us if the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no additional fee, but you will also exert full control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-use graphical interface. It will take just one click of the mouse to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached data for any Internet site that is using Varnish and if you’re more tech-savvy, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of system memory for content caching purposes, so even if you run an enormous number of sites on your server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be visible. You’ll only have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the website visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers include 3 free IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
