Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any site, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the physical server and to boost the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor accesses a page on a certain site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is loaded for a second time, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance increase is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests considerably faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any data is changed meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to access them.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, refers to the maximum amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use interface will enable you to delete or to restart any instance, to view exhaustive system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open considerably faster, meaning more happy site users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web app accelerator and improve the load speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you can add an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether plenty of content will be cached for one website or whether the available memory will be utilized by multiple sites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to deactivate any instance, to check the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached data using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with any of our VPS server plans at no additional fee, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The only requirement is that the VPS must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each package comes with a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you will have minimum several hundred megabytes, which is quite sufficient even for multiple resource-heavy sites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your visitors open, so you’ll notice the considerably faster Internet site load times and the decreased load on your virtual server very soon. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less pricey Virtual Private Server, since you will not require that much power to guarantee the proper operation of your websites even if you have large Internet sites with many visitors. Best results are accomplished if the sites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order 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 it. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you’ll also have complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface. It’ll take only one single click to start or discontinue an instance or to delete the cache for any website that’s using Varnish and if you are more knowledgeable, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of memory for web content caching purposes, so even in case you run lots of Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their performance will be visible. You will just have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the sites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers come with three free-of-charge IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
