Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content. This tool is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a specific site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested info is served as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and in case any of them is opened for a second time, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. In case any data is updated meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting package and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to stop or to restart any instance, to view in-depth system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open significantly faster, meaning more satisfied users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the website accelerator tool and increase the speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of memory dedicated to Varnish at no additional cost and you can create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether plenty of data will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be utilized by different sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to shut down any instance, to view the system log file for it or to delete the cached files using one-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP address for the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be enabled and administered without any effort via Hepsia’s simple-to-use graphical interface and, with no more than one single click, you can see an exhaustive log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cache for any Internet site and much more. Soon after you set up the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will start caching the webpages loaded by your visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will perceive a considerably faster website performance plus a reduced load on the dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you host multiple websites on the server.
