Varnish is a web application accelerator tool, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by 100%, based on the content itself. This tool is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to increase the access speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a specific site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested info is served as a response. If the Varnish accelerator is enabled, it caches the web pages that the visitor browses and if any of them is opened once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The increase in the overall performance is due to 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 data is changed in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody tries to access them.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud web hosting package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s time and effort saving graphical interface will permit you to remove or to restart any instance, to see detailed system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load considerably faster, which means more pleased visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is part of the standard service set that you will acquire in case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your sites through our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the sites that can use this platform simultaneously. As these two features are not bound to each other, you can use a few websites with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single Internet site. The Varnish platform performs best if you set a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with a simple way of restarting any instance. Also, you will be able to delete the cached content with only one click.
