Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to boost the access speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a specific Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested data is delivered as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor browses and if any of them is opened again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any data is modified meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time someone accesses them.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our cloud website hosting plans. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a very simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a certain website. You can also see a comprehensive system log file or clear the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your sites and to have many happy site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans include Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web app accelerator and optimize the loading speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of system memory particularly for Varnish at no additional cost and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you momentarily. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of data will be cached for one site or if the memory will be used by several Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to discontinue any instance, to check the system log associated with it or to delete the cached data using 1-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform comes by default with each of the VPS hosting plans that we’re offering on the condition that the machine is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your sites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more 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 own several different websites, you’ll notice a serious decrease in the server load and a substantially better website loading speed. The platform will need to work for a little while as the users navigate the website and once the website content has been cached, you’ll perceive the effects. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly VPS plan will do the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites work substantially better, but you will also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you obtain one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional fee as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached data or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge number of resource-demanding websites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with an enormous load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your server will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
