Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to enhance the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor loads a page on a certain site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is loaded once more, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is updated in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our shared hosting. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting packages and you’ll get a quite intuitive GUI, which will give you full control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or shut down any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a certain site. You can also check an elaborate log file or clear the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your sites and to have numerous happy website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish caching platform is part of the default service set that you will obtain if you choose to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your websites via our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two features are not tied to each other, you can use a few Internet sites 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 Internet site. The Varnish caching platform performs best if you assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you an easy way of rebooting any instance. Also, you will be able to delete the cached data with just one click.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish content caching platform comes by default with all Linux VPS that we’re offering given that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own a handful of Internet sites, you will notice an enormous reduction in the overall server load and a tremendously better site load speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a while as the users navigate the web pages and once the site content has been cached, you will notice the effects. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced Virtual Private Server plan will accomplish the same job as a more costly one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work substantially better, but you’ll also spare some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you obtain one of the dedicated hosting that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to optimize the performance of your websites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its intuitive graphical interface will allow you to monitor system processes, to clear the cache or to reboot any instance with one single click. The minimal amount of memory that the caching platform can employ to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast collection of resource-intensive websites, so your server will be able to cope with a huge load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
