Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor loads a page on a specific site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is loaded for a second time, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests significantly quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. In case any data is edited in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone attempts to open them.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering will permit you to use Varnish once your brand-new account has been opened, as the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been published on the Internet. In case you are in need of more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll have more freedom. The Varnish platform will considerably lower the load on the server that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without efforts from the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached files associated with any of your Internet sites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS services, so if you get a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the data caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes based on the specific VPS plan that you’ve picked during the subscription process, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the overall performance of a handful of resource-intensive Internet sites, so the faster website load speeds and the lowered server load will be perceivable. The effect may not be distinguishable instantly, since the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that people browse, but soon after you set it up, you’ll observe its full capacity. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS and to pay less money to get the very same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a powerful website hosting solution and you obtain one of the dedicated hosting services that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to improve the overall performance of your websites at no additional cost as long as the server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate GUI will allow you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast selection of traffic-intensive Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a tremendous load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
