Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending 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 browsing speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor accesses a page on a given site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and in case any of them is opened for a second time, it is served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any content is edited in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody accesses them.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you would like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, refers to the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any given moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI will permit you to turn off or to reboot any instance, to check detailed system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load much faster, meaning more pleased site users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new account is active, as the caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload distribution software once your site has been built. If you are in need of more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine straight 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 goes to say that you will have more versatility. The platform will greatly decrease the load on the machine produced by your sites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without effort from the Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/disable any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached content for any of your Internet sites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS hosting in case you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your websites depends upon the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you have picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB of memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the performance of multiple sites. It will take some time for you to detect the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors open, but soon thereafter you’ll notice the substantially decreased load on the virtual machine and the increased Internet site loading speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to make use of a lower-end VPS plan for sites that would usually require a more high-priced web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can employ Varnish to optimize the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you will also exert complete control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface. It will take only one click of the mouse to start or terminate an instance or to delete the cached content for any site that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you are more advanced, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of system memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you host lots of Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their performance will be apparent. You’ll simply need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers come with three free-of-charge IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
