Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, as it can increase the speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to increase the browsing speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor accesses a page on a particular site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested content is sent as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is accessed once again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any data is changed meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to open them.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any given moment. Hepsia’s simple-to-use graphical interface will enable you to shut down or to reboot any instance, to view detailed logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open significantly faster, which means more pleased site users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish platform is an essential part of the basic service set that you will obtain if you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your sites through our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default system memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this platform at the same time. Since these two things aren’t bound to each other, you can use several instances with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single Internet site. The Varnish platform performs best when you set a dedicated IP for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you an easy means of restarting any instance. What’s more, you will be able to delete the cached contents with just one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS web hosting, so in case you buy a server with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make full use of the data caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the particular package that you’ve chosen on the order form, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to improve the performance of a handful of resource-hungry Internet sites, so the faster site browsing speeds and the decreased load on the VPS will be perceptible. The result may not be observable instantly, as the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that users open, but soon after you enable it, you’ll perceive its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS and to pay less cash to get the exact same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you need a powerful hosting solution and you buy any of the dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to improve the performance of your sites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to monitor system processes, to delete the cached files or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a vast selection of large-scale websites, so your server will be able to handle a gigantic load while your website visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
