Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical machine and to accelerate the browsing speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor accesses a page on a specific Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is delivered as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is accessed again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is changed in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and enhance the load speed of your websites regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can enable and configure the platform with a few mouse clicks from the easy-to-use GUI offered by our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many sites will employ the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you’ve got lots of content on a particular website and you gain lots of website visitors, more system memory will give you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will offer you easy 1-click buttons for stopping or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for any website and for viewing in-depth system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated services that we are offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in your account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same section will allow you to create more instances as well, in case you would like to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one large Internet site or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of Varnish in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents, to view a log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The content caching platform is available by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your website content depends upon the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the work of multiple sites. It will take a little time for you to notice the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors access, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the considerably reduced load on your virtual server and the increased website browsing speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less powerful plan for websites which would normally need a more costly hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a powerful web hosting solution and you obtain any of the Linux dedicated hosting services offered by us, you’ll be able to use the Varnish platform to enhance the work of your websites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-use graphical interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cached files or to restart any instance with one single click. The minimum amount of system memory that Varnish can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an immense selection of frequently visited sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a gigantic load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include several dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
