Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of faster access. It’s sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a specific webpage, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server handles this request and sends back the requested content. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache its pages on the very first request and in case the visitor visits a cached page once more, the data will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The increased loading speed is an end result of the much faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared with any server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will keep being served the exact same content again and again, as any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting service and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use interface will permit you to turn off or to restart any instance, to check comprehensive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open significantly faster, meaning more happy site users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the web application accelerator and enhance the loading speed of any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you can activate an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal momentarily. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if plenty of data will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be used by multiple websites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to deactivate any instance, to see the system log associated with it or to clear the cached content using one-click controls. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our VPS web hosting services in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your site content depends on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have no less than several hundred MB of memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the overall performance of multiple websites. It will take a little time for you to notice the results, since Varnish caches the content that visitors request, but soon after that you’ll notice the significantly decreased load on the machine and the increased site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful package for websites that would typically need a more expensive web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you need a more powerful web hosting solution and you get any of the dedicated servers hosting that we offer, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to boost the overall performance of your websites at no additional cost as long as the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click. The minimal amount of memory that the caching platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a large selection of traffic-intensive sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a substantial load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
