Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to enhance the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a specific website, 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 pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed once again, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance increase comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any data is modified meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each website hosting plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s time and effort saving interface will allow you to stop or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open tremendously faster, which means more happy site visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated plans that we are offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same Upgrades section will permit you to create more instances as well, if you want to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one traffic-heavy site or use several different websites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cached data, to view a system log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform comes by default with all VPS web hosting plans offered by us on the condition that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the performance of your websites with just a few clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have a number of sites, you’ll notice an enormous reduction in the overall server load and a substantially better website loading speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a little while while the users navigate the website and as soon as the website content has been cached, you’ll see the effect. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey VPS package will do the same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you obtain any of the dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to improve the work of your Internet sites at no additional fee as long as the server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use interface will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cache or to reboot any instance with one single mouse click. The minimal amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an enormous collection of resource-intensive Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with several dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
