Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to improve the access speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a given website, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested information is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is accessed again, it’s served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance improvement is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. In case any data is modified in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you need more, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will enable you to create more instances as well, if you’d like to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single regularly visited Internet site or use several Internet 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 server package as well. Hepsia will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to delete the cache, to see a log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish caching platform is included by default with each of the VPS web hosting service that we offer on the condition that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your websites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run several sites, you will notice a noticeable reduction in the overall server load and a considerably faster site loading speed. The platform will need to work for a while while the users navigate the site and as soon as the site content has been cached, you will notice the effects. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive package will accomplish the very same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites work better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want a more powerful web hosting solution and you purchase any of the dedicated service offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the overall performance of your websites at no additional fee as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly GUI will permit you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cache or to restart any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge collection of large-sized Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a colossal system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include several dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
