Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any Internet site, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical server and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Anytime a visitor loads a page on a given site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested info is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is opened for a second time, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests significantly faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is modified in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Web Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each web hosting plan and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you’d like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI will allow you to turn off or to reboot any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load much faster, which means more satisfied website visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is offered as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you need more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same section will permit you to create more instances as well, if you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single resource-consuming Internet site or run a number of sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will give you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click, you will be able to delete the cache, to view a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish to boost the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you’ll also have complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface. It’ll take only one click of the mouse to start or cancel an instance or to delete the cached content for any site that’s using the Varnish platform and if you’re more trained, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you host a huge number of sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be apparent. You will simply need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP, but since our dedicated servers include three charge-free IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
