Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by 100%, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a given website, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests significantly faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any data is modified meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody attempts to access them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and optimize your websites’ loading speed regardless of the shared hosting package that you’ve picked and you can add and set up the data caching platform with several clicks of the mouse using the simple-to-use GUI offered by our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got a lot of content on a specific Internet site and you win numerous visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use Varnish. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you simple one-click buttons for terminating or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any Internet site and for checking comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated services offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated account has been activated, as the data caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load balancing software once your site has been launched online. In case you’re in need of more system memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you will enjoy more flexibility. The Varnish platform will immensely reduce the load that your sites produce, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish with no effort from your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached data associated with any of your websites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with all Linux VPS hosting offered by us as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your websites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you’ve got several different sites, you will notice a great reduction in the server load and a considerably better website loading speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a while while the users navigate the web pages and once the website content has been cached, you will distinguish the results. One of the pros of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly Virtual Private Server plan will do the exact same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform better, but you will also spare a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you buy any of the Linux dedicated hosting services that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the performance of your sites at no additional charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will enable you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an immense collection of heavy Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a massive system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
