Varnish is a website accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall server load and to boost the browsing speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a certain Internet 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 enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is accessed once again, it is fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the web requests substantially faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is edited meanwhile, the cached pages will also be updated the next time somebody opens them.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and enhance your sites’ load speed irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you have picked and you can add and set up the platform with several clicks using the easy-to-work-with interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you have a lot of content on a given site and you win numerous site visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will provide you with easy 1-click controls for deleting or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with each site and for seeing comprehensive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to employ Varnish once your new semi-dedicated account has been created, since the content caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software once your website has been launched. In case you need more system memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server momentarily. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll have more freedom. The Varnish platform will noticeably lower the load on the server produced by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage Varnish with ease from the Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached data for any of your sites or to see system log files.
