Varnish is a web accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the speed of any website, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to boost the browsing speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor accesses a page on a given Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested info is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and in case any of them is opened once again, it’s served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any data is modified in the meantime, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody opens them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting packages. You can add it to your web hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you’ll get an exceptionally easy-to-use GUI, which will grant you full control over the data caching system. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or discontinue any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular site. You can also check a comprehensive system log or erase the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you’ll be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have plenty of satisfied website users.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting packages, so in case you obtain a server with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to use the content caching platform at no extra cost. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the specific configuration that you have selected during the registration process, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to optimize the performance of several heavy Internet sites, so the better web page load speeds and the decreased load on your VPS server will be discernible. The result may not be evident straight away, as the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the content that users open, but soon after you enable it, you will perceive its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS and to pay less cash to get the same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish data caching platform can be configured and administered with ease from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface and, with no more than one single click, you can see a detailed log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached data associated with any site and much, much more. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your site visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will witness a substantially faster website performance in addition to a lowered load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you run an enormous number of sites on the server.
