Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the server and to improve the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a certain Internet site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested information is served as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is accessed for a second time, it’s served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests tremendously faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any data is edited meanwhile, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our Linux web hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages and you will get an amazingly simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the data caching platform. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or shut down any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular website. You can also check an in-depth system log or delete the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for maximum performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have plenty of happy users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is part of the standard set of services that you’ll get if you choose to host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your sites via our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two features are not linked to each other, you can use a couple of websites with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish caching platform performs best when you set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you an easy means of rebooting any instance. Furthermore, you’ll be able to clear the cached files with just one click.

Varnish in VPS

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no additional cost, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole requirement is that the Virtual Private Server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a few mouse clicks. Each package features a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple busy sites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your site visitors open, so you’ll notice the tremendously faster site loading times and the less load on the Virtual Private Server very soon. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less costly Virtual Private Server, since you won’t require that many resources to warrant the correct operation of your websites even if you own traffic-intensive websites with numerous visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the sites that use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you purchase any of the Linux dedicated hosting that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to boost the performance of your websites at no additional charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use GUI will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The minimal amount of memory that the platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an immense number of traffic-hungry Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with a huge system load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
