Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by one hundred percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to improve the browsing speed for the site visitors. Each time a visitor loads a page on a particular site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested data is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is opened once again, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance boost comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is changed meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone accesses them.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your websites under a cloud website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with a few clicks through your hosting Control Panel. The platform is offered as an upgrade with all our shared plans and you can select the number of the websites that will use it and the maximum storage space that will be available for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they aren’t directly linked to each other, so you can decide if you need plenty of memory for a single large site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can make use of the full potential of the Varnish platform in case the websites use a dedicated IP. Using the Control Panel, you can swiftly start/reboot/discontinue an instance, clear the cached contents independently for each website which uses Varnish or see a detailed system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is included as standard with all semi-dedicated service that we are offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will permit you to enable more instances too, if you want to use Varnish with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one resource-heavy Internet site or use a number of websites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached files, to view a system log file or to reboot an instance.

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting service that we offer given that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more 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 manage several sites, you will notice a substantial reduction in the server load and a tremendously faster web page loading speed. The platform will need to work for a while while the users browse the website and once the website content has been cached, you’ll see the effects.
