Varnish is a website accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to reduce the overall load on the server and to improve the access speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor accesses a page on a given website, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is served as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the web pages that the site visitor browses and in case any of them is accessed for a second time, it’s served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The boost in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any content is updated meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody opens them.

Varnish in Web Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s full potential and increase the load speed of your sites regardless of the web hosting package that you have picked and you can enable and set up the content caching platform with a few clicks using the easy-to-work-with GUI offered by our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many Internet sites will employ the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you have lots of content on a certain Internet site and you receive plenty of website visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will offer you easy one-click buttons for deleting or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache for each Internet site and for checking detailed system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your brand-new account is active, as the data caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software once your site has been launched online. If you need more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server in an instant. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more freedom. The caching platform will considerably reduce the load on the server produced by your websites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort through your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached content associated with any of your sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS

Varnish comes by default with each of the VPS that we offer given that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the work of your sites with just a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own several different Internet sites, you’ll notice an enormous reduction in the server load and a considerably better webpage loading speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a while while the users browse the site and once the site content has been cached, you will notice the results. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive plan will do the very same job as a more costly one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites work much better, but you will also save some money.
