Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, as it can increase the speed of any site, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content itself. This tool is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to increase the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor loads a page on a specific site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor browses and if any of them is accessed once more, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is edited in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud web hosting plans. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages and you will get a really easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a given website. You can also view an in-depth system log or erase the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your websites and to have a lot of pleased visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes as standard with all semi-dedicated plans that we offer and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you’re in need of more, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will allow you to enable more instances as well, if you wish to use the Varnish platform with multiple websites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single resource-intensive Internet site or run several sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents, to view a log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want the most powerful website hosting solution and you buy one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to improve the work of your sites at no extra cost as long as the server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will allow you to monitor system processes, to delete the cache or to reboot any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that Varnish can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an enormous collection of resource-heavy Internet sites, so your server will be able to handle a gigantic system load while your visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will come with several different dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
