Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any site, at times even by 100%, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall server load and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor loads a page on a given Internet site, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested data is sent as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor opens and if any of them is loaded once again, it is served by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance improvement comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests considerably faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. If any content is edited meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone tries to access them.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the web accelerator and enhance the loading speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for Varnish at no extra charge and you will be able to add an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you right away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if lots of content will be cached for a single site or if the available memory will be used by different Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to remove any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached files using 1-click controls. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with any of our VPS server packages at no additional cost, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The one and only requirement is that the virtual server must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with only a couple of clicks. Each VPS package comes with a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB, which is sufficient even for multiple resource-consuming sites. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your website visitors access, so you’ll notice the considerably faster page load speeds and the decreased load on the VPS in no time. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less expensive VPS server, since you won’t need that many resources to warrant the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you own traffic-intensive Internet sites with plenty of visitors. Maximum results are achieved if the websites which use the Varnish platform use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish to boost the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you’ll also have complete control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI. It’ll take just one click to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached content for any site that’s using Varnish and in case you’re more proficient, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you host an enormous number of websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be visible. You’ll only have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers include 3 charge-free IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
