Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to accelerate the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor accesses a page on a given Internet site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested data is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens and if any of them is loaded once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests tremendously faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any data is updated meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of content that the platform can store at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface will allow you to turn off or to restart any instance, to view exhaustive system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open substantially faster, meaning more pleased visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is offered by default with all semi-dedicated plans that we are offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same section will enable you to create more instances as well, in case you want to use Varnish with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one large-scale website or run several different Internet sites with the default memory. You can get the most out of Varnish in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to delete the cached content, to view a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with all our VPS server plans at no additional fee, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole condition is that the VPS must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each package comes with a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several large-size websites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your site visitors request, so you’ll notice the substantially faster site load speeds and the reduced load on the machine very soon. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less expensive VPS, since you won’t require that many resources to ensure the correct operation of your sites even if you manage resource-intensive sites with many visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the Internet sites which use Varnish also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want a powerful hosting solution and you acquire any of the dedicated servers that we are offering, you will be able to use Varnish to enhance the work of your websites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with interface will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with one single click. The minimum amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a vast collection of resource-intensive Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with a massive load while your visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your machine will include several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
