Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to accelerate the access speed for the website visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a certain site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is loaded for a second time, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any data is updated in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone opens them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting service and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI will enable you to delete or to restart any instance, to check in-depth system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open considerably faster, meaning more satisfied users and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated service come with Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web app accelerator and boost the speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of memory dedicated to Varnish at no additional cost and you will be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you want 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 right away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide if a lot of content will be cached for a single website or whether the memory will be utilized by multiple websites. Hepsia will permit you to reboot or to stop any instance, to view the system log for it or to delete the cached files using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP address for the websites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish content caching platform is included by default with each of the VPS hosting service offered by our company as long as the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your websites with just a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have a handful of Internet sites, you will notice a noticeable reduction in the overall server load and a much better web page load speed. The platform will need to work for a little while while the users navigate the pages and as soon as the content has been cached, you will distinguish the effects. One of the advantages of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the very same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your sites work significantly better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish to accelerate the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when 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 charge, but you will also have complete control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface. It’ll take just a click to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached data associated with any site that is using Varnish and if you are more practiced, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you run a vast number of Internet sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be visible. You’ll just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors browse on their end. The platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers come with 3 free IPs, you will have everything you need.
