Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any site, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical machine and to increase the browsing speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a specific Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested information is returned as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is accessed for a second time, it is served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests significantly faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any content is changed meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone opens them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared service and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI will allow you to terminate or to restart any instance, to see elaborate system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load considerably faster, meaning more happy website users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is part of the basic set of services that you will obtain in case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your websites via our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two things are not bound to each other, you can use several instances with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single website. The Varnish platform performs best when you use a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with a simple means of restarting any instance. On top of that, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with only one single click.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS hosting, so if you purchase a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take full advantage of the caching platform at no additional charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the very plan that you’ve selected at signup, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to enhance the performance of a number of traffic-heavy Internet sites, so the faster web page browsing speeds and the less load on the virtual server will be noticeable. The effect may not be apparent straight away, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the site content that people browse, but soon after you set it up, you’ll perceive its full capacity. This platform will allow you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you purchase any of the Linux dedicated hosting services offered by us, you’ll be able to use the Varnish platform to improve the overall performance of your websites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-use interface will allow you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of memory that the platform can employ to cache website content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a huge number of traffic-heavy sites, so your server will be able to cope with a gigantic system load while your website visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will include several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
