Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the physical server and to accelerate the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor opens a page on a specific website, the web browser request is taken care of by the web server and the requested content is served as a response. If Varnish is activated, it caches the pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is opened once more, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the server directly. The improvement in the overall performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests substantially quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any content is changed in the meantime, the cached web pages will also be updated the next time someone accesses them.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages and you’ll get an exceptionally easy-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or remove any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a given Internet site. You can also view a detailed log file or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your sites and to have a lot of satisfied site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages include Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the website accelerator tool and accelerate any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you will be able to add an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you need 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 order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of content will be cached for a single website or if the available memory will be used by different sites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to deactivate any instance, to view the system log file for it or to delete the cached content using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites which will use it.
