Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, as it can increase the loading speed of any website, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical machine and to enhance the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a particular Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested information is sent as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is loaded once again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any data is modified meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud web hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting plans and you will get a truly simple-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or stop any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a certain website. You can also see an exhaustive system log file or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have plenty of pleased website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated account has been opened, since the platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can use this load balancing software as soon as your website has been published to the web. If you are in need of more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more versatility. The caching platform will significantly lower the load on the server that your sites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with ease from your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached files associated with any of your Internet sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no additional fee, as the platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole prerequisite is that the Virtual Private Server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Each plan offers a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is enough even for multiple traffic-heavy sites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your site visitors browse, so you will notice the substantially faster Internet site load times and the lowered load on the virtual machine in no time. The caching platform will allow you to use a less pricey virtual machine, since you will not require that many resources to warrant the correct operation of your sites even if you own large-size sites with many visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the websites that use Varnish also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to accelerate the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you’ll also have total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface. It will take just a click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cache for any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more trained, you can also check the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of system memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you host lots of Internet sites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their performance will be obvious. You will simply need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers include three free IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
