Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, as it can increase the speed of any site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical machine and to accelerate the browsing speed for the website visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a certain site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is sent as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor opens and in case any of them is loaded again, it is served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests considerably quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any content is changed meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone opens them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our cloud hosting plans. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared plans and you will get a pretty easy-to-use interface, which will give you full control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or turn off any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific site. You can also view an elaborate log file or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your sites and to have lots of gratified visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering will permit you to use Varnish once your new account has been activated, since the content caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can use this workload distribution software once your website has been built. In case you’re in need of 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 machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more flexibility. The platform will enormously lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your websites cause, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish effortlessly from your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached data for any of your websites or to view system log files.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans which are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be enabled and managed without any effort from the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one single click, you can view an elaborate log, create or restart an instance, delete the cached data for any Internet site and much more. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform for a given domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a substantially faster site performance and a decreased server load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run a vast number of sites on the machine.
