Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, as it can increase the speed of any website, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the server and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor accesses a page on a certain website, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested information is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor browses and if any of them is loaded again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any data is edited meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud hosting packages. You can add it to your hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get a really easy-to-use interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a given website. You can also check a detailed system log or erase the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your websites and to have plenty of happy website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator tool and accelerate any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you will be able to create an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated plans. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you momentarily. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose whether lots of data will be cached for one site or whether the available memory will be utilized by different sites. Hepsia will permit you to restart or to shut down any instance, to view the system log file for it or to clear the cached files using single-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS packages, so if you buy a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to make full use of the caching platform at no extra fee. Varnish can use different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes based on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve picked during the server order process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to optimize the performance of several different heavy sites, so the faster web page browsing speeds and the decreased load on the machine will be noticeable. The effect may not be visible straight away, since Varnish will need some time to cache the site content that visitors open, but shortly after you set it up, you will perceive its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to give less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you want the most powerful website hosting solution and you buy any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the performance of your Internet sites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to reboot any instance with one single mouse click. The minimum amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge number of traffic-intensive websites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a tremendous system load while your website visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
