Varnish can enormously improve the general performance of your web sites. Learn how to make the most of its power.
Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, as it can increase the load speed of any site, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the server and to improve the access speed for the website visitors. Each time a visitor opens a page on a particular Internet site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is delivered as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is loaded once again, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator processes the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is changed in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time someone tries to open them.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting service
and if you want to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI will enable you to turn off or to restart any instance, to check in-depth logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load substantially faster, meaning more satisfied site users and potential clients.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting service
include Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the web accelerator tool and boost the loading speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you will be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated packages. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal right away. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide if a lot of data will be cached for one website or if the memory will be utilized by several sites. Hepsia will permit you to reboot or to discontinue any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to clear the cached files using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will employ it.
Varnish in VPS Servers
Varnish comes by default with all Linux VPS hosting service
that we offer given that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got several sites, you’ll notice a considerable reduction in the server load and a considerably better webpage load speed. The platform will need to work for a while while the users navigate the site and as soon as the content has been cached, you will see the result. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced Virtual Private Server package will do the same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work better, but you’ll also spare some cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers

that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to improve the performance of your Internet sites at no additional charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will enable you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached data or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache Internet site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge collection of resource-heavy websites, so your server will be able to cope with a colossal load while your visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your machine will include several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
