Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by 100%, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical machine and to enhance the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor loads a page on a particular website, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is served as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and in case any of them is accessed once more, it is served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is edited in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone opens them.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, displays the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving interface will permit you to remove or to restart any instance, to view elaborate system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open much faster, which means more satisfied website users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is included in the standard service set that you’ll receive when you decide to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your sites via our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a few sites with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single website. The Varnish platform performs best if you allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with an easy way of restarting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with just one mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed VPS hosting, so if you buy a VPS with this Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the caching platform at no extra cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes based on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen during the signup procedure, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the performance of a number of resource-requiring sites, so the better web page loading speeds and the reduced load on your virtual server will be perceptible. The effect may not be evident immediately, as Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that visitors browse, but soon after you activate it, you’ll perceive its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS server and to pay less money to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to boost the load speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you’ll also have full control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface. It will take only one mouse click to start or terminate an instance or to delete the cached files for any site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more advanced, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for caching purposes, so even if you run a huge number of Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be evident. You’ll only have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers include three free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
