Varnish is a web app accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the speed of any website, at times even by 100 percent, depending on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the server and to accelerate the browsing speed for the website visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a given website, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested data is delivered as a reply. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the site visitor opens and in case any of them is loaded again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The boost in the performance comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the visitors. If any content is modified in the meantime, the cached pages will also be updated the next time someone attempts to access them.

Varnish in Hosting

You can unlock Varnish’s potential and optimize your sites’ load speed irrespective of the hosting package that you’ve selected and you can activate and configure the data caching platform with several clicks of the mouse from the easy-to-use interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you will be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will employ the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you have plenty of content on a certain website and you gain plenty of visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy 1-click controls for cancelling or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for each site and for viewing exhaustive system logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need the most powerful web hosting solution and you obtain one of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to enhance the work of your sites at no extra fee as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached data or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache Internet site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an enormous selection of repeatedly visited sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a gigantic load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your machine will come with several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
