Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical machine and to enhance the browsing speed for the website visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a certain site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is loaded again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any data is changed in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone opens them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

You can use Varnish’s potential and increase the loading speed of your websites regardless of the shared hosting plan that you’ve chosen and you can add and set up the content caching platform with a couple of clicks using the intuitive interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 MB and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got a lot of content on a certain Internet site and you draw numerous website visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use Varnish. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you simple 1-click buttons for deactivating or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any site and for checking in-depth system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated plans that we offer will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated account has been opened, as the content caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can use this workload balancing software as soon as your website has been launched. In case you’re in need of more system memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server straight away. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more flexibility. The caching platform will enormously decrease the server load caused by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without any effort from the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content associated with any of your sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with each of the VPS servers that we’re offering given that the machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the performance of your websites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you run several sites, you will notice a great decrease in the overall server load and a much faster site loading speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a little while as the visitors browse the site and as soon as the content has been cached, you will observe the results. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey plan will do the very same job as a more costly one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites perform considerably better, but you will also spare some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need the most powerful web hosting solution and you order one of the dedicated servers that we offer, you’ll be able to use the Varnish platform to boost the performance of your Internet sites at no extra fee on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate graphical interface will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached files or to restart any instance with a click. The minimal amount of system memory that the caching platform can use to cache content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an immense collection of large sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a massive load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. As your dedicated server will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
