Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall server load and to enhance the access speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a particular website, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is served as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens 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 performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any content is updated in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody opens them.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated services offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated account has been created, as the caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this workload distribution software once your website has been taken online. If you’re in need of more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will enjoy more flexibility. The caching platform will noticeably reduce the load on the machine generated by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort via the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache associated with any of your websites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS services, so if you obtain a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take advantage of the data caching platform at no extra charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the very Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen during the server order process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to improve the performance of a number of resource-consuming Internet sites, so the better site loading speeds and the decreased load on the server will be perceivable. The effect may not be apparent immediately, since Varnish will need some time to cache the site content that people open, but shortly after you enable it, you will witness its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can employ Varnish to increase the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you will also have total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface. It’ll take just one single click to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached content for any site that is using Varnish and in case you are more tech-savvy, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of virtual memory for data caching purposes, so even if you host many Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be distinguishable. You’ll just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors open on their end. The platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers come with 3 free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
