Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to accelerate the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a specific website, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is returned as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens and if any of them is opened again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost 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 users. If any content is edited meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account through the Upgrades menu 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 Internet sites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface will enable you to discontinue or to reboot any instance, to see comprehensive system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load substantially faster, meaning more satisfied website visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is offered as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in the account. In case you’re in need of more, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will permit you to activate more instances as well, if you’d like to use Varnish with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single large-scale website or run several sites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform in case you use a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cached content, to check a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server packages at no additional cost, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only condition is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each VPS package comes with a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is quite sufficient even for several frequently visited websites. Soon after you set up Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your website visitors browse, so you’ll notice the substantially faster web page load times and the decreased load on the VPS in no time. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less costly VPS server, as you won’t need that many resources to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you’ve got traffic-intensive Internet sites with multiple visitors. Maximum results are accomplished if the websites which use the Varnish platform use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get the Varnish data caching platform at no extra fee and you’ll exert full control over it via an exceptionally intuitive GUI – you will be able to start, to disable or to reboot an instance, to view an elaborate system log, to clear the cached data associated with any site and much, much more. The Varnish platform will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you run busy Internet sites with a vast number of visitors, you will notice the significantly faster page loading times and the less load. This will happen shortly after you start using Varnish, since it will require some time to cache the web pages that people access. You can make the most of the platform’s capability if the websites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that your dedicated server comes with several IP addresses by default, you will not have to pay anything on top of the monthly charge for the server itself.
