Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall server load and to enhance the access speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is returned as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is opened for a second time, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any content is edited meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone accesses them.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and accelerate your sites’ loading speed regardless of the shared website hosting package that you have picked and you can enable and set up the content caching platform with several clicks via the easy-to-use graphical interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got lots of content on a certain site and you get numerous website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy 1-click buttons for disabling or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with each site and for seeing elaborate logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the website accelerator tool and accelerate the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory particularly for Varnish at no additional charge and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal immediately. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of data will be cached for a single site or whether the memory will be utilized by several sites. Hepsia will enable you to restart or to remove any instance, to check the system log associated with it or to delete the cached files using single-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP for the websites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS plans, so in case you buy a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the content caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for caching purposes based on the particular VPS package that you’ve selected on the order form, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to optimize the overall performance of several different resource-consuming websites, so the better web page loading speeds and the less load on your virtual machine will be perceivable. The effect may not be apparent momentarily, since Varnish will require some time to cache the website content that visitors open, but soon after you activate it, you will feel its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS and to pay less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans which are ordered with the custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be set up and managed without any effort from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one single click, you can check an elaborate log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached data for any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the web pages requested by the site visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you will observe a substantially better site performance plus a reduced load on the dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you host a huge number of Internet sites on the machine.
