Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100%, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall server load and to increase the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor accesses a page on a particular website, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is served as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the site visitor browses and if any of them is loaded once more, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance improvement is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any content is edited meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone accesses them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and boost your sites’ loading speed irrespective of the shared hosting plan that you have selected and you can enable and configure the content caching platform with a few clicks through the easy-to-use graphical interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and vice versa. If you have plenty of content on a specific Internet site and you win numerous visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will provide you with simple 1-click buttons for discontinuing or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any website and for checking elaborate logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator tool and optimize the speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of system memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you momentarily. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if lots of content 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 delete any instance, to check the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached files using single-click controls. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with all our VPS hosting in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The data caching platform comes by default and the memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the work of multiple Internet sites. It’ll take some time for you to observe the results, as the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors browse, but shortly after that you’ll notice the considerably less load on the server and the increased Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS plan for sites which would normally require a more expensive hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to improve the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you’ll also have total control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI. It’ll take only one click of the mouse to start or stop an instance or to delete the cached content associated with any site that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you are more sophisticated, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you host a huge number of sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be apparent. You’ll only have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the site visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers come with 3 cost-free IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
