Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical machine and to increase the access speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a specific Internet site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is accessed once again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests significantly quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any content is edited in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody opens them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud web hosting services. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages and you’ll get a truly simple-to-work-with interface, which will give you full control over the caching system. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can restart or terminate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific site. You can also see an elaborate log or erase the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have many happy website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web accelerator tool and boost the loading speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for Varnish at no extra charge and you will be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you straight away. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of data will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be used by multiple websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to restart or to disable any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached data using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed VPS services, so in case you acquire a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the content caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the very server configuration that you have chosen during the order process, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to boost the work of a handful of traffic-heavy websites, so the better website loading speeds and the decreased load on your virtual machine will be discernible. The result may not be observable momentarily, as the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the site content that users browse, but shortly after you enable it, you will feel its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS server and to pay less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to accelerate any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no extra fee, but you will also have total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface. It will take only a click to start or terminate an instance or to delete the cached data associated with any website that’s using Varnish and in case you are more practiced, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of memory for website content caching purposes, so even in case you run many Internet sites on your machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their overall performance will be evident. You will only need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers include three cost-free IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
