Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall server load and to accelerate the access speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a certain site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is sent as a reply. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is loaded once again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any content is updated meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you’d like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface will allow you to cancel or to reboot any instance, to see detailed system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a 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 considerably faster, which means more pleased site visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your new account has been opened, since the content caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can make use of this load balancing software once your website has been published to the web. If you need more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server right away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll have more flexibility. The caching platform will enormously reduce the load on the machine caused by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish with no effort through your Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/delete any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached data associated with any of your sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS servers, so if you acquire a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make full use of the content caching platform at no additional cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes depending on the specific package that you’ve chosen during the signup process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to optimize the performance of several regularly visited sites, so the better page browsing speeds and the less load on your server will be perceivable. The effect may not be obvious immediately, since Varnish will require some time to cache the website content that people access, but shortly after you enable it, you’ll observe its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a lower-end Virtual Private 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

You can employ Varnish to increase the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you’ll also exert total control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface. It will take only one single mouse click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cached content for any Internet site that is using Varnish and in case you’re more experienced, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you run many websites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be evident. You’ll just need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the websites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers come with three free-of-cost IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
