Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall server load and to improve the access speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a given site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the site visitor browses and if any of them is accessed once more, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests significantly faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is modified in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to open them.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux hosting packages. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you’ll get an amazingly simple-to-work-with interface, which will give you full control over the caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or deactivate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a certain site. You can also see a detailed system log or clear the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for content 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 set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have lots of satisfied website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is included by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in your account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same section will enable you to create more instances too, if you’d like to use Varnish with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one single large-sized website or use a number of websites with the default memory. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click, you will be able to delete the cached files, to check a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS web hosting packages in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The data caching platform comes by default and the system memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites depends upon the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the overall performance of numerous websites. It will take a little time for you to distinguish the effects, since Varnish caches the content that site visitors browse, but shortly thereafter you will notice the substantially less load on your virtual server and the enhanced Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a lower-end plan for Internet sites which would usually need a more costly web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you need a more powerful web hosting solution and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us, you’ll be able to use Varnish to improve the performance of your Internet sites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will permit you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a large collection of frequently visited websites, so your server will be able to deal with a tremendous system load while your website visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. Since your server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
