Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any website, sometimes even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to accelerate the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a given website, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested info is sent as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is opened once again, it’s served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests considerably faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any data is modified in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time someone opens them.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux hosting. You can add it to your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting packages and you’ll get a quite simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you full control over the caching system. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or delete any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular website. You can also check a detailed log or clear the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your websites and to have many satisfied site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is included in the default service set that you will receive when you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your Internet sites through our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two things are not linked to each other, you can use a few sites with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single site. The Varnish platform works best if you allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with a simple means of rebooting any instance. What’s more, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with just one mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our VPS server packages at no additional cost, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only prerequisite is that the virtual server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a few mouse clicks. Each plan features a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for multiple resource-absorbing Internet sites. Shortly after you set up Varnish, it’ll start caching the content that your visitors open, so you’ll notice the tremendously faster site loading speeds and the lowered load on your VPS server very soon. The platform will allow you to use a less pricey virtual server, since you won’t require that many resources to warrant the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you own large-size websites with multiple visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the websites which use Varnish use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need the most powerful hosting solution and you buy any of the Linux dedicated service that we are offering, you will be able to use Varnish to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no additional fee on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached files or to reboot any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for an enormous collection of heavy Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a colossal system load while your site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
