Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any website, sometimes even by 100%, based on the content. This tool is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall server load and to increase the access speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a certain Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is served as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is loaded once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance improvement is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any content is updated meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody opens them.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and increase your websites’ load speed irrespective of the shared website hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can enable and configure the platform with a couple of clicks from the intuitive interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many websites will use the Varnish caching platform, 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 available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you have plenty of content on a certain Internet site and you win many website visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you simple one-click buttons for shutting down or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with each Internet site and for seeing comprehensive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is part of the default set of services that you’ll get when you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your websites through our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this platform simultaneously. Since these two features are not tied to each other, you can use a few instances with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish caching platform works best when you get a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple means of restarting any instance. Also, you’ll be able to clear the cached files with only one click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting packages, so in case you purchase a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use the content caching platform at no additional cost. Varnish can use different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the specific Virtual Private Server package that you’ve selected on the order form, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the work of several traffic-heavy websites, so the faster site load speeds and the lowered load on your virtual server will be perceivable. The effect may not be obvious instantly, since Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the website content that users browse, but soon after you enable it, you will observe its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful server and to pay less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you acquire any of the dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering, you will be able to use Varnish to optimize the work of your sites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cache or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of system memory that Varnish can use to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous selection of heavy websites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a colossal load while your site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
