Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to improve the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a certain site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested content is returned as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is loaded once again, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any content is changed in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and boost the speed of your sites regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you have picked and you can add and set up the data caching platform with several clicks from the user-friendly interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use 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 is offered in increments of 32 MB and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got plenty of content on a given website and you get plenty of visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will provide you with simple 1-click buttons for terminating or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for any site and for viewing comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish platform is an essential part of the standard service set that you will acquire if you decide to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your websites through our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this platform at the same time. Since these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single web site. Varnish performs best when you assign a dedicated IP to the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with a simple way of rebooting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to delete the cached files with only one click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is included by default with all VPS hosting plans that we are offering 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 memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you own several different Internet sites, you will notice a substantial decrease in the overall server load and a tremendously better web page load speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a while as the users browse the pages and once the site content has been cached, you will notice the effect. One of the pros of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced package will accomplish the very same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work considerably better, but you will also spare a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to optimize the loading speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you’ll also exert full control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface. It will take only one single mouse click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cache for any website that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more trained, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of virtual memory for caching purposes, so even if you run lots of sites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be noticeable. You will only have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever pages the website visitors browse on their end. The platform works best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that our servers come with 3 free-of-cost IPs, you will have all that you need.
