Massive Improvements to HTTP/2 Performance

August 13, 2019

Your website just got faster!

Extensive optimizations have been made to our web servers that have improved HTTP/2 performance by over 500%!

In benchmarks taken from http2benchmark.org, a WordPress site using our LiteSpeed Cache plugin loads up to 78X faster than a WordPress site running on the open source Apache web server with the W3TotalCache plugin enabled (a popular configuration with most other hosting companies).

This is the benefit of our next generation hosting platform!

HTTP/2 is used only when accessing websites over HTTPS.

Have you switched your website from HTTP to HTTPS yet? Put this to the top of your list to resolve “Not Secure” browser warnings and to reap these amazing performance improvements!

Need help switching to HTTPS? We now offer a professional HTTP to HTTPS conversion service for WordPress websites to Varial Hosting customers.

cPanel Updated to v78 Across All Servers

April 9, 2019

The latest major release of cPanel is now available to all Varial Hosting customers. Version 78 features improvements to the Email Accounts interface and a new tool called Email Deliverability to manage DKIM keys and SPF records. As previously announced, v78 also removes SquirrelMail from our Webmail options due to the project being abandoned by its original developers. The next time you log into Webmail, SquirrelMail users will be asked to select between our RoundCube (our personal favourite) and Horde Webmail applications.

More details on all the new changes can be found at:

We have replaced cPanel’s MultiPHP Manager tool with CloudLinux’s PHP Selector on our Hermione server.
