Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any site, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall server load and to accelerate the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor accesses a page on a certain Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is delivered as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is opened once more, it is served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance improvement is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any data is updated in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud web hosting package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, refers to the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to deactivate or to restart any instance, to see comprehensive logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load tremendously faster, which means more happy visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages include Varnish by default, so you can use the web application accelerator and boost the speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a few clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal instantaneously. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of data will be cached for a single website or whether the memory will be used by multiple Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to restart or to shut down any instance, to view the system log for it or to clear the cached data using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will employ it.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you get any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish platform to enhance the performance of your websites at no extra fee on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with one single click. The minimal amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large collection of resource-demanding sites, so your server will be able to deal with a tremendous load while your website visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will come with several dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
