Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the speed of any site, at times even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the server and to boost the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor loads a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor opens and in case any of them is opened again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any data is updated meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody accesses them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and increase your websites’ loading speed irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can enable and set up the data caching platform with a few clicks using the intuitive interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many Internet sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you have lots of content on a specific Internet site and you attract numerous site visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple one-click controls for turning off or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any site and for checking in-depth system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same Upgrades section will allow you to activate more instances as well, if you would like to use the Varnish caching platform with more sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of a single large-size website or run several different Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you have a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click, you’ll be able to delete the cached content, to check a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish platform comes by default with all VPS services that we are offering as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the overall performance of your sites with just a few mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run a number of Internet sites, you will notice a substantial reduction in the overall server load and a substantially faster page loading speed. The platform will have to work for a little while as the users navigate the site and once the website content has been cached, you will see the effects. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced Virtual Private Server plan will do the same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your sites perform considerably better, but you’ll also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you buy one of the Linux dedicated hosting services offered by us, you can use the Varnish caching platform to optimize the overall performance of your websites at no extra cost as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with one single click. The smallest amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge collection of regularly visited websites, so your server will be able to handle a colossal load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. As your machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
