Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the speed of any site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, based on the content. This tool is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to accelerate the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a specific Internet site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested info is served as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and in case any of them is loaded again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests substantially faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is updated meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody accesses them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our cloud web hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a pretty simple-to-use interface, which will grant you complete control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or turn off any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific Internet site. You can also check a comprehensive system log file or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your websites and to have a lot of gratified users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers that we are offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, as the content caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this load balancing software once your site has been launched. In case you need more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine in an instant. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will enjoy more versatility. The Varnish platform will noticeably reduce the load on the machine produced by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish effortlessly through the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/disable any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content associated with any of your websites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS service, so if you order a server with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use the caching platform at no additional fee. Varnish can use different amounts of system memory for caching purposes based on the very setup that you have selected during the signup procedure, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to boost the overall performance of a handful of large-size sites, so the better site load speeds and the reduced load on the virtual machine will be discernible. The result may not be evident immediately, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that visitors access, but soon after you activate it, you will witness its full capacity. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS and to give less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be enabled and administered without efforts through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can see a detailed system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cache associated with any site and much, much more. Soon after you configure Varnish for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages opened by your visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will witness a substantially better website performance plus a reduced load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host a huge number of sites on the dedicated machine.
