Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the physical server and to enhance the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor accesses a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested data is returned as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is accessed again, it’s served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any content is edited meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody attempts to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud web hosting package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any given moment. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface will enable you to shut down or to reboot any instance, to see in-depth logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open much faster, meaning more satisfied site visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been opened, as the platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload distribution software once your website has been published online. If you need more system memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine right away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more freedom. The caching platform will noticeably reduce the load on the machine generated by your websites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without effort through your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached files associated with any of your Internet sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS hosting packages when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The content caching platform comes by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites depends upon the particular plan that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal exclusively for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to optimize the performance of numerous websites. It’ll take a little time for you to see the effects, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors browse, but soon after that you’ll notice the considerably decreased load on your VPS server and the improved site browsing speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS plan for sites that would normally need a more high-priced web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can employ Varnish to accelerate the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no extra charge, but you will also exert complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface. It’ll take just one click to start or terminate an instance or to delete the cached content for any website that’s using Varnish and in case you are more knowledgeable, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of virtual memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you run a huge number of websites on your server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be noticeable. You will just need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever content the visitors browse on their end. The platform performs best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers come with 3 free-of-charge IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
