Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to accelerate the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor accesses a page on a certain Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is served as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is opened again, it is served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any content is updated in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone accesses them.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux website hosting packages. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you’ll get a very simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you full control over the data caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a specific site. You can also view a comprehensive log file or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your sites and to have many gratified site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to create more instances too, in case you want to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-heavy Internet site or use several Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of Varnish in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to clear the cached data, to check a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS packages in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The content caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites depends on the specific package that you have selected, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal solely for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to optimize the performance of numerous websites. It will take a little time for you to see the results, as the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors open, but soon thereafter you’ll notice the substantially less server load and the accelerated Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a lower-end Virtual Private Server plan for sites that would typically need a more costly web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish data caching platform can be set up and administered without any effort through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can browse an elaborate system log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached files associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you enable Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the web pages accessed by your site visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll witness a considerably better site performance in addition to a lowered load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you run an enormous number of Internet sites on your dedicated machine.
