Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to enhance the access speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor loads a page on a specific Internet site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the site visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed once more, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests considerably faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any content is updated meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to open them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and increase your websites’ load speed regardless of the shared hosting package that you have picked and you can add and configure the platform with a couple of clicks using the simple-to-work-with interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many Internet sites will employ the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got plenty of content on a particular site and you get numerous visitors, more memory will give you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple one-click buttons for terminating or restarting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any website and for checking detailed logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, as the data caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software as soon as you launch your website. In case you are in need of more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server straight away. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The platform will significantly decrease the load on the server produced by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with no effort via the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache for any of your websites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS plans, so in case you buy a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to make full use of the caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for content caching purposes based on the very setup that you’ve chosen at signup, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to optimize the overall performance of a handful of resource-requiring sites, so the better site load speeds and the lowered server load will be perceptible. The result may not be detectable momentarily, since the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the content that users request, but shortly after you enable it, you will observe its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS server and to give less money to get the exact same performance you’d get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you order any of the dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to enhance the overall performance of your sites at no extra cost as long as the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate interface will permit you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with a click. The minimal amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast selection of resource-requiring websites, so your server will be able to handle a tremendous system load while your site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
