Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the server and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor accesses a page on a given Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is opened once more, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any content is changed in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time somebody accesses them.

Varnish in Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and boost the load speed of your websites regardless of the hosting plan that you have picked and you can add and configure the data caching platform with several clicks of the mouse via the easy-to-work-with interface offered by our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you’ve got lots of content on a specific Internet site and you win plenty of website visitors, more system memory will give you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy 1-click controls for switching off or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any site and for viewing comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is an essential part of the basic set of services that you will obtain if you choose to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your websites through our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. The default system memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two features are not linked to each other, you can use a few sites with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish platform performs best if you assign a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you a simple means of rebooting any instance. On top of that, you’ll be able to clear the cached files with only one click.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform comes by default with all VPS web hosting offered by our company as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the work of your sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own several different Internet sites, you will notice a substantial decrease in the server load and a substantially faster website load speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a while while the visitors browse the website and once the content has been cached, you will perceive the result. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the very same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your websites perform better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be configured and administered without efforts from Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI and, with no more than one click, you can check a detailed system log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cached data associated with any Internet site and much more. Soon after you set up the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the webpages loaded by your website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a substantially faster website performance and a reduced load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you run many websites on your dedicated server.
