Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to enhance the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a specific site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor browses and if any of them is loaded for a second time, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests considerably faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is changed meanwhile, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Web Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s full potential and optimize the load speed of your websites irrespective of the web hosting package that you’ve selected and you can enable and configure the platform with a few clicks of the mouse using the user-friendly interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to choose two different things – how many sites will employ Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you have a lot of content on a given Internet site and you gain plenty of website visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple 1-click controls for removing or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any site and for viewing in-depth logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand-new account has been created, since the content caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software as soon as your website has been published on the Internet. In case you are in need of more system memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server right away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more flexibility. The Varnish platform will greatly decrease the load on the semi-dedicated server generated by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without efforts from your Hepsia 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 files for any of your websites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish platform is included by default with all Linux VPS hosting offered by our company on the condition that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your websites 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 less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got several different websites, you’ll notice an immense reduction in the server load and a tremendously faster site loading speed. The platform will have to work for a while as the visitors browse the web pages and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will observe the effect. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive package will do the same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your sites work substantially better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated server. The Varnish data caching platform can be activated and administered with no effort via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one click, you can view a comprehensive log, create or restart an instance, clear the cached files for any website and much, much more. Soon after you activate Varnish for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages loaded by the visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you will observe a tremendously faster site performance and a lowered load on the dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run many Internet sites on the machine.
