Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the server and to boost the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a specific website, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is delivered as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any data is updated in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared website hosting service and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to stop or to restart any instance, to check elaborate logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load substantially faster, which means more satisfied site users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated hosting service that we’re offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you need more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will permit you to activate more instances as well, if you’d like to use Varnish with more Internet sites. The two things can be added independently – you can cache the content of one single resource-absorbing website or use a number of sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. Hepsia will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you will be able to delete the cached data, to view a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with all our VPS server plans at no extra cost, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole prerequisite is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Each Virtual Private Server package comes with a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred MB, which is enough even for multiple large-scale sites. Shortly after you set up Varnish, it will begin caching the content that your website visitors open, so you will notice the much better site loading speeds and the less load very soon. The platform will permit you to use a less costly virtual server, as you will not require that much power to guarantee the correct operation of your websites even if you’ve got traffic-intensive sites with lots of visitors. Best results are accomplished if the websites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order to boost the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you’ll also have total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface. It’ll take only a click to start or delete an instance or to clear the cache associated with any website that’s using Varnish and if you’re more tech-savvy, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of memory for caching purposes, so even in case you run an immense number of websites on your machine and they all use the platform, the improvement in their performance will be obvious. You will simply need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers include 3 cost-free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
