Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any site, at times even by one hundred percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall server load and to enhance the access speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor accesses a page on a given site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested information is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is opened once more, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests significantly faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any data is edited in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Website Hosting

In case you host your websites under a website hosting account with us, you will be able to add Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse through your Control Panel. The caching platform is available as an optional upgrade with all our plans and you can select how many websites will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they aren’t directly tied to each other, so you can choose if you need plenty of memory for one large-size site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of Varnish if the sites use a dedicated IP. Using the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/delete an instance, clear the cached contents individually for each site which uses the Varnish platform or see a detailed system log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish caching platform is included in the default set of services that you will receive when you choose to host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your websites via our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two features are not tied to each other, you can use a couple of websites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single Internet site. The Varnish platform works best if you allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you an easy means of rebooting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with only one single click.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish data caching platform is included by default with each of the Linux VPS packages that we’re offering given that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the performance of your websites with only a few mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you have several different Internet sites, you’ll notice a serious decrease in the overall server load and a substantially better web page load speed. The platform will need to work for a little while as the visitors browse the website and as soon as the content has been cached, you will perceive the result. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced VPS plan will accomplish the same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites work better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you get any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to boost the work of your Internet sites at no extra fee on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-use interface will allow you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one single mouse click. The smallest amount of system memory that the caching platform can employ to cache site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a large number of traffic-hungry sites, so your server will be able to deal with a gigantic system load while your website visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your server will include several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
