Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the speed of any site, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical server and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a particular website, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is sent as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is loaded once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance improvement is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any data is modified meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to access them.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our website hosting plans. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you’ll get a pretty simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you full control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can restart or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a particular site. You can also see an in-depth system log file or clear the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have many pleased site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which comes by default with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same Upgrades section will permit you to enable more instances as well, if you would like to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two things can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single traffic-heavy site or run several different Internet sites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you use a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cached content, to see a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS plans, so if you order a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to take full advantage of the data caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for content caching purposes based on the very Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen during the VPS order process, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to improve the overall performance of several busy websites, so the better web page browsing speeds and the reduced load on the virtual server will be noticeable. The result may not be apparent straight away, as Varnish will need some time to cache the site content that users access, but shortly after you set it up, you’ll feel its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful server and to give less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish to optimize the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you will also have total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface. It will take just one mouse click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cached data associated with any website that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more tech-savvy, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of system memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you run a huge number of sites on your server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their performance will be perceivable. You’ll just need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever content the visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 cost-free IPs, you will have everything you need.
