Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a certain site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is accessed once more, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is changed meanwhile, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody attempts to access them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, refers to the maximum amount of data that the platform can store at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to remove or to restart any instance, to see comprehensive system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, meaning more satisfied site visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand-new account has been opened, as the data caching platform is available 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 workload distribution software once your website has been published online. If you need more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine right away. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you will have more versatility. The platform will greatly lower the load on the machine generated by your websites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform effortlessly via the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached data associated with any of your websites or to see system logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you need a powerful hosting solution and you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer, you can use Varnish to boost the work of your sites at no extra charge on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to delete the cached contents or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous collection of busy websites, so your server will be able to deal with an immense system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
