Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical server and to increase the browsing speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a particular site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is sent as a reply. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed once again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the overall 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 modified in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody accesses them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, refers to the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to delete or to restart any instance, to see elaborate system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open significantly faster, which means more satisfied users and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is part of the standard set of services that you will obtain in case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your Internet sites through our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the sites that can use this platform simultaneously. As these two features aren’t bound to each other, you can use several instances with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single Internet site. The Varnish platform works best if you assign a dedicated IP to the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you an easy way of restarting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents with only one mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our Linux VPS hosting if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends upon the particular package that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the overall performance of numerous websites. It’ll take some time for you to detect the effects, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors request, but after that you will notice the significantly reduced load on your VPS and the accelerated site loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less powerful plan for sites which would normally require a more high-priced hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you want the most powerful hosting solution and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated web hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use Varnish to enhance the work of your sites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will enable you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for an enormous number of resource-absorbing Internet sites, so your server will be able to handle a gigantic system load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. As your machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
