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 website, sometimes even by 100 percent, 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 boost the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor accesses a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is served as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the site visitor browses and if any of them is opened once again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance increase is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any data is changed in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you will be able to add Varnish with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Control Panel. The caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting packages and you can choose the number of the websites that will use it and the total storage space that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they are not linked directly to each other, so you can choose whether you want lots of memory for one large-size site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish platform if the websites use a dedicated IP address. Using the Control Panel, you can swiftly start/reboot/delete an instance, clear the cached contents individually for each site that uses the Varnish platform or view a detailed system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory quota. 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 activate more instances as well, if you want to use Varnish with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one resource-absorbing site or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to clear the cached content, to see a system log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS web hosting packages, so if you acquire a server with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take advantage of the content caching platform at no additional charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for caching purposes based on the very VPS plan that you have selected at signup, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to enhance the work of a number of traffic-intensive sites, so the better site browsing speeds and the reduced load on your server will be perceivable. The result may not be obvious instantly, since Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that visitors browse, but soon after you enable it, you will feel its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to pay less money to get the exact same performance you’d get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to accelerate the speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no extra fee, but you will also have full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface. It’ll take just one mouse click to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached data associated with any Internet site that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more proficient, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of virtual memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you run an immense number of websites on your machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their performance will be evident. You will just need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the website visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
