Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by one hundred percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to boost the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a certain website, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is returned as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is opened once more, it’s served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance increase comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests significantly faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is changed meanwhile, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our website hosting plans. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages and you’ll get a really easy-to-use GUI, which will grant you complete control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific website. You can also see an elaborate log file or clear the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have plenty of satisfied website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated plans come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator and speed up any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of memory particularly for Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of data will be cached for one site or if the memory will be used by different Internet sites. Hepsia will permit you to restart or to stop any instance, to see the system log for it or to clear the cached content using one-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with all our VPS server packages at no additional fee, as the caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole condition is that the VPS must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a few clicks. Each VPS plan comes with a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you’ll have minimum several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient enough even for several popular Internet sites. Soon after you enable Varnish, it will start caching the content that your website visitors open, so you’ll notice the tremendously better site loading speeds and the lowered load on your Virtual Private Server in no time. The platform will permit you to use a less pricey virtual machine, as you won’t require that much power to ensure the correct operation of your sites even if you own heavy-traffic sites with numerous visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the Internet sites which use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want a more powerful hosting solution and you obtain one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering, you can use the Varnish caching platform to optimize the performance of your websites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with GUI will permit you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense selection of high-demand sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a gigantic system load while your website visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. As your server will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
