Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any website, sometimes even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to increase the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a specific website, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested information is served as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded once more, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is modified meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody opens them.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each shared website hosting plan and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to cancel or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load significantly faster, meaning more pleased site users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The content 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 account. In case you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will allow you to enable more instances too, in case you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with more sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single resource-consuming site or use several different Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you use a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to delete the cached content, to see a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need the most powerful website hosting solution and you purchase any of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer, you can use the Varnish caching platform to boost the work of your Internet sites at no additional cost on the condition that the server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use GUI will enable you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one single mouse click. The smallest amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a huge number of traffic-hungry Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with a tremendous load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. As your machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
