Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any site, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to improve the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor accesses a page on a particular website, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested information is returned as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is accessed for a second time, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any data is changed in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting packages. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages and you will get a very easy-to-work-with interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or deactivate any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular website. You can also check a detailed system log file or erase the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your sites and to have lots of satisfied site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been activated, as the content caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this workload balancing software as soon as your website has been published to the web. If you need more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server momentarily. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more freedom. The Varnish platform will noticeably reduce the load on the machine that your websites generate, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly through the Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached content for any of your websites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our Linux VPS hosting packages when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your websites is dependent upon the specific Virtual Private Server package that you have selected, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal exclusively for data caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the overall performance of numerous sites. It will take a little time for you to observe the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that site visitors access, but after that you will notice the significantly decreased load and the improved Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for sites which would typically need a more costly hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need the most powerful website hosting solution and you buy one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer, you’ll be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to optimize the work of your sites at no extra cost on the condition that the server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached files or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The smallest amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a huge number of resource-requiring Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with an immense load while your visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. Since your machine will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
