Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by 100%, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a given site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested info is returned as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is opened again, it is served 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 faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any content is edited meanwhile, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody tries to open them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud web hosting. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared plans and you’ll get an exceptionally simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you complete control over the content caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or turn off any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a particular Internet site. You can also check a comprehensive log or erase the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have numerous pleased users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which comes by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in the account. If you need more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will allow you to add more instances as well, in case you wish to use Varnish with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one resource-demanding Internet site or run several different websites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one click, you will be able to clear the cache, to check a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS web hosting, so in case you purchase a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the data caching platform at no extra charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes based on the specific sever setup that you have chosen on the order page, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to improve the performance of several large sites, so the faster web page load speeds and the reduced load on the server will be noticeable. The effect may not be distinguishable right away, since Varnish will need some time to cache the website content that users request, but shortly after you set it up, you will feel its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server and to give less money to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting which are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be enabled and managed effortlessly from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface and, with no more than one click, you can see a detailed system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cache associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you set up Varnish for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the web pages browsed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a significantly better website performance and a lowered load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a lot of websites on the dedicated machine.
