Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any website, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical machine and to accelerate the browsing speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a specific website, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested data is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the site visitor browses and if any of them is opened once more, it’s served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any content is updated meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages and you will get a very intuitive GUI, which will give you complete control over the data caching system. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can restart or delete any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific website. You can also view a detailed system log or clear the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your websites and to have numerous pleased site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is 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 use it with any site that you host in your account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will permit you to enable more instances as well, in case you want to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple websites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-demanding Internet site or use several Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to clear the cached content, to see a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish platform is included by default with each of the Linux VPS offered by us given that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the overall performance of your sites with just a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own several websites, you’ll notice an immense decrease in the overall server load and a significantly better website loading speed. The platform will have to work for a little while while the users navigate the website and once the site content has been cached, you’ll observe the result. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey package will accomplish the same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work substantially better, but you’ll also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish caching platform can be configured and managed without effort via Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can see an elaborate system log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cache associated with any website and much more. Soon after you configure the Varnish platform for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the pages accessed by the visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will witness a significantly better website performance as well as a decreased server load. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you run a large number of Internet sites on your machine.
