Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any website, sometimes even by 100 percent, 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. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a given website, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is sent as a reply. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is accessed once more, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests tremendously faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is edited in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to open them.

Varnish in Web Hosting

In case you host your websites in a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to activate Varnish with several mouse clicks through your Control Panel. The data caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our packages and you can choose how many websites will use it and the maximum storage space that will be available for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they’re not linked directly to each other, so you can choose if you want a lot of memory for a single large-sized site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can use the full potential of the Varnish platform in case the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/deactivate an instance, delete the cached content independently for each site that employs Varnish or check a detailed log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which comes by default with all semi-dedicated services that we offer and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. If you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will enable you to activate more instances as well, in case you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with more sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-intensive website or use several websites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of Varnish in case you have a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to clear the cached content, to see a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS web hosting services, so if you buy a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to make the most of the content caching platform at no extra charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for caching purposes depending on the specific setup that you’ve chosen during the signup procedure, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to improve the work of a handful of traffic-heavy sites, so the faster web page load speeds and the reduced load on your virtual server will be perceivable. The effect may not be distinguishable immediately, as the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the content that visitors open, but shortly after you enable it, you will witness its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful server and to pay less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you want a more powerful web hosting solution and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate GUI will permit you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with a click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous collection of frequently visited sites, so your server will be able to cope with a substantial system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
