Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the server and to enhance the access speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a given website, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is delivered as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is loaded again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests significantly quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any data is modified in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux hosting packages. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get a pretty easy-to-work-with interface, which will give you full control over the caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a given website. You can also see a detailed system log or clear the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for top performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your websites and to have many satisfied website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web app accelerator tool and improve the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you can add an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether lots of content will be cached for a single website or if the available memory will be used by multiple Internet sites. Hepsia will permit you to reboot or to discontinue any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to delete the cached content using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS

You can take advantage of Varnish with all our virtual private server plans at no extra cost, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The sole condition is that the server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. Each plan features a different amount of memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple traffic-intensive sites. Shortly after you set up Varnish, it’ll start caching the content that your website visitors request, so you’ll notice the tremendously faster web page loading speeds and the lowered server load very soon. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less costly virtual server, as you won’t need that much power to ensure the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you have large websites with plenty of visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the websites that use Varnish also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish to boost the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you’ll also have complete control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It will take just one click of the mouse to start or remove an instance or to delete the cached data associated with any website that’s using Varnish and in case you are more sophisticated, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for content caching purposes, so even if you host numerous websites on your dedicated server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be evident. You’ll only need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers include three free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
