Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100%, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the physical server and to increase the browsing speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor opens a page on a given Internet site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is returned as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor opens and if any of them is loaded again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to 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. If any data is updated meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with several mouse clicks through your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our web hosting plans and you can choose how many sites will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached data. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they aren’t directly tied to each other, so you can choose whether you want plenty of memory for one single large-sized site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can take advantage of the full potential of Varnish in case the sites use a dedicated IP. With the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/restart/remove an instance, delete the cached data individually for each site which uses Varnish or view a detailed system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. In case you need more, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to add more instances too, in case you wish to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one traffic-heavy website or run several Internet sites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of Varnish in case you use a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one click, you will be able to delete the cached content, to check a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS packages, so in case you order a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the caching platform at no additional cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes based on the very sever setup that you have selected during the subscription process, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to boost the overall performance of several resource-hungry websites, so the faster web page browsing speeds and the reduced load will be noticeable. The effect may not be evident immediately, since the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the content that visitors request, but soon after you activate it, you will witness its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS server and to pay less cash to get the exact same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be activated and managed without effort via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can check an exhaustive log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached files for any site and much more. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will start caching the webpages accessed by your site visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll witness a tremendously better site performance plus a decreased load. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host multiple sites on your server.
