Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a given Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is sent as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens and if any of them is opened again, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement 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 site visitors. If any data is changed meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you’ll get a very simple-to-use graphical interface, which will give you full control over the content caching platform. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or delete any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific Internet site. You can also check a comprehensive log or erase the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have many happy website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, since the caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload balancing software once your site has been published on the Internet. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will substantially decrease the load on the semi-dedicated server generated by your sites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort through the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached data for any of your Internet sites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS web hosting when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your websites depends on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you have selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the performance of multiple websites. It’ll take a little time for you to distinguish the results, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors browse, but soon thereafter you’ll notice the substantially decreased load and the accelerated Internet site loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server package for websites that would typically require a more high-priced web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you need a powerful hosting solution and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer, you will be able to use Varnish to improve the work of your sites at no additional fee as long as the server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-use graphical interface will enable you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to reboot any instance with a click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast selection of large sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
