Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, as it can increase the speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall server load and to accelerate the browsing speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a certain website, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is served as a reply. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded for a second time, it is served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance increase comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any content is modified in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud plan and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of content that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to delete or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the web app accelerator and improve the load speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of memory exclusively for Varnish at no additional charge and you can add an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal straight away. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of content will be cached for a single website or whether the memory will be used by multiple websites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to stop any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to clear the cached files using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP to the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS plans, so in case you purchase a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the caching platform at no extra fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes depending on the very VPS plan that you have picked during the order process, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to boost the work of several busy sites, so the better website load speeds and the less load on your server will be discernible. The result may not be obvious momentarily, as the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that people browse, but soon after you activate it, you will perceive its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful server and to give less money to get the exact same performance you’d get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish content caching platform can be activated and managed with ease from Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI and, with no more than one single click, you can check a comprehensive system log, create or reboot an instance, delete the cached files for any website and much more. Soon after you configure Varnish for a certain domain or subdomain, it will start caching the web pages browsed by your website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll witness a tremendously faster website performance in addition to a decreased load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you run a huge number of websites on your dedicated machine.
