Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical machine and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a specific site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested information is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is opened once again, it’s served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests considerably faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any data is updated meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux hosting package and if you want to use it, you can add it to your account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, displays the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any given moment. Hepsia’s intuitive GUI will allow you to cancel or to restart any instance, to check comprehensive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open much faster, which means more pleased site users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web accelerator tool and accelerate the speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of system memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no extra cost and you can create an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal instantaneously. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether lots of content will be cached for one site or if the memory will be used by multiple Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to restart or to discontinue any instance, to see the system log file for it or to clear the cached files using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting packages, so in case you purchase a server with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes based on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve picked during the signup procedure, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to improve the performance of a handful of resource-absorbing sites, so the faster web page loading speeds and the decreased load on your server will be discernible. The result may not be detectable immediately, since the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the site content that visitors access, but soon after you enable it, you will perceive its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you want the most powerful hosting solution and you acquire any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to optimize the work of your websites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cache or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache website content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense number of traffic-consuming websites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a substantial system load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
