Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to increase the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor accesses a page on a certain site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed 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 web requests considerably faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any data is edited meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone attempts to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your websites under a cloud web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting packages and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they’re not linked directly to each other, so you can decide whether you want plenty of memory for one large website or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unleash the full potential of the Varnish caching platform in case the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the hosting Control Panel, you can swiftly start/restart/remove an instance, delete the cached contents individually for each site that uses the Varnish platform or view a detailed log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish once your new account is active, since the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software as soon as your website has been published to the web. In case you need more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server straight away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will substantially decrease the load that your websites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without efforts via your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/remove any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached files associated with any of your websites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish content caching platform is included by default with all VPS servers that we offer as long as the virtual machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the performance of your sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own several different sites, you will notice a serious decrease in the server load and a significantly faster webpage load speed. The platform will need to work for a while as the users navigate the site and as soon as the content has been cached, you will observe the effect. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced package will do the very same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform significantly better, but you’ll also spare a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want a powerful website hosting solution and you acquire any of the dedicated servers that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the work of your sites at no extra fee on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate GUI will enable you to monitor system processes, to delete the cached data or to reboot any instance with one click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge number of resource-hungry sites, so your server will be able to handle a colossal system load while your site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your server will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
