Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to improve the access speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a certain website, 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 pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is loaded again, it is served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any content is modified meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface will permit you to switch off or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open much faster, meaning more pleased site visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web application accelerator tool and boost the load speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 MB of memory particularly for Varnish at no extra fee and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you immediately. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of data will be cached for a single website or whether the available memory will be utilized by multiple sites. Hepsia will enable you to restart or to discontinue any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached content using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with all our VPS servers in case you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform is available by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache your site content depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve selected, but even with the lower-end packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB of memory at your disposal exclusively for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to boost the overall performance of numerous sites. It’ll take some time for you to see the effects, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors browse, but soon after that you’ll notice the significantly lowered load on your virtual machine and the increased site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server plan for Internet sites which would usually need a more pricey web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to enhance the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no additional charge, but you’ll also exert full control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface. It will take just one single mouse click to start or stop an instance or to clear the cached data associated with any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more trained, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for caching purposes, so even if you host many websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be observable. You’ll just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that our servers come with 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
