Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the speed of any site, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall server load and to increase the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a particular site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is sent as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens and if any of them is loaded again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests tremendously faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any content is modified in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud hosting. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting packages and you’ll get a very simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you full control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or terminate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a given site. You can also check a detailed system log or clear the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your sites and to have many satisfied website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated account has been opened, as the content caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this load distribution software as soon as you launch your site. In case you are in need of more memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more flexibility. The Varnish platform will enormously lower the load on the machine generated by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with ease from your Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/delete any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached data for any of your websites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server packages at no extra fee, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The only condition is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Each VPS plan offers a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several regularly visited sites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your website visitors request, so you’ll notice the significantly faster site loading times and the decreased load on your server in no time. Varnish will permit you to use a less pricey virtual machine, as you will not require that much power to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of your Internet sites even if you have resource-consuming Internet sites with many visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the websites which use Varnish also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to improve the speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you will also have complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface. It’ll take only one single mouse click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cached files associated with any site that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you are more experienced, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you host many websites on your dedicated server and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their performance will be distinguishable. You’ll only need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers include 3 cost-free IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
