Varnish is a web accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, as it can increase the speed of any Internet site, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content itself. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to improve the access speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor opens a page on a given site, the browser request is processed by the web server and the requested content is sent as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the web pages that the website visitor opens and in case any of them is opened for a second time, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the performance 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. In case any content is updated meanwhile, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and increase the load speed of your websites regardless of the cloud hosting package that you’ve selected and you can enable and set up the platform with several mouse clicks via the simple-to-work-with graphical interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will employ Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you have a lot of content on a given website and you get many site visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy 1-click buttons for deleting or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache for each site and for seeing elaborate logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you need the most powerful web hosting solution and you obtain any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to improve the work of your sites at no additional cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with GUI will allow you to monitor system processes, to delete the cached data or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache website content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large selection of repeatedly visited websites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a huge system load while your visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will include several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
