Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any site, at times even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to improve the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor loads a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested content is served as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is opened again, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any data is modified in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s user-friendly interface will permit you to switch off or to restart any instance, to see exhaustive system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open much faster, meaning more happy users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you need more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same Upgrades section will enable you to enable more instances as well, in case you want to use the Varnish platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one single large website or use several websites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you’ll be able to delete the cached content, to see a system log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS when you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the particular VPS plan that you have picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the work of multiple Internet sites. It will take some time for you to distinguish the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors open, but soon thereafter you will notice the significantly decreased load on the machine and the improved Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS plan for Internet sites which would normally need a more costly hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to enhance the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you will also have total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate GUI. It’ll take just one single click to start or shut down an instance or to delete the cached files associated with any Internet site that’s using Varnish and in case you’re more experienced, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of virtual memory for website content caching purposes, so even in case you host a large number of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be detectable. You’ll just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever content the visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our servers come with 3 free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
