Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any website, sometimes even by 100 percent, 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 server and to improve the browsing speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a specific site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is loaded again, it’s served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any data is modified in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody attempts to access them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting plan and if you want to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the total amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI will allow you to terminate or to restart any instance, to see detailed system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, which means more pleased site users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web app accelerator tool and increase the loading speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of data will be cached for a single website or if the memory will be used by several websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached data using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with all our VPS server packages at no extra fee, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only precondition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks. Each package features a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient enough even for multiple traffic-intensive Internet sites. Shortly after you enable Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your website visitors access, so you’ll notice the significantly faster web page load times and the decreased load very soon. The caching platform will allow you to use a less high-priced Virtual Private Server, as you won’t require that much power to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of your sites even if you own resource-consuming sites with lots of visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the Internet sites that use Varnish use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be set up and administered effortlessly through Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface and, with no more than one single click, you can view an elaborate system log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cache associated with any website and much more. Soon after you activate Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the web pages requested by the site visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll witness a considerably faster site performance in addition to a reduced server load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run a lot of websites on your dedicated machine.
