Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by 100%, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to improve the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a given site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is returned as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded once again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is edited in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to open them.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s potential and increase the load speed of your sites irrespective of the website hosting plan that you’ve picked and you can activate and set up the content caching platform with a few clicks of the mouse using the easy-to-use GUI offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will employ Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and vice versa. If you have lots of content on a given website and you gain lots of website visitors, more memory will give you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy one-click controls for turning off or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with any Internet site and for checking elaborate logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting service come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web application accelerator and improve the load speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you will be able to enable an instance with no more than a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you immediately. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether a lot of data will be cached for a single website or if the memory will be used by several websites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached files using one-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP for the websites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our VPS server plans at no additional cost, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only requirement is that the server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each plan features a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for several large Internet sites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your visitors request, so you’ll notice the significantly faster page loading speeds and the decreased load on the machine in no time. The platform will permit you to use a less high-priced VPS server, since you will not need that much power to sustain the correct operation of your websites even if you run high-demand sites with multiple visitors. Best results are accomplished if the websites which use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish to enhance the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no additional cost, but you will also exert total control over it via Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface. It’ll take just one mouse click to start or shut down an instance or to delete the cache associated with any site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you are more competent, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of system memory for data caching purposes, so even if you host numerous websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be noticeable. You’ll just have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever pages the website visitors access on their end. The platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include three cost-free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
