Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the load speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100%, based on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall server load and to enhance the access speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested info is returned as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is opened for a second time, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests significantly faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any content is changed in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our shared hosting plans. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you will get an exceptionally simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you full control over the data caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can restart or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a certain website. You can also check a detailed log or delete the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have lots of gratified site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish caching platform is included in the standard service set that you will get if you choose to host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your websites through our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a few sites with the default amount of memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single site. The Varnish caching platform works best if you set a dedicated IP for the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you an easy means of restarting any instance. In addition, you will be able to delete the cached files with just one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS web hosting plans, so in case you buy a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the content caching platform at no extra charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the specific VPS package that you’ve picked during the signup process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to enhance the work of a number of resource-demanding websites, so the faster website load speeds and the lowered load on your Virtual Private Server will be perceptible. The result may not be distinguishable immediately, as Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that people access, but soon after you set it up, you will observe its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS and to give less money to get the same performance you’d get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be enabled and administered without any effort from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface and, with no more than one click, you can view an elaborate system log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached files for any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the web pages browsed by your visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a tremendously better website performance as well as a reduced load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host multiple websites on the server.
