Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for quicker access. It’s occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a site visitor loads a specific webpage, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the necessary content. If Varnish is enabled for a certain website, it will cache its pages at the very first visit and in case the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The boosted load speed is an end result of the substantially faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the visitors will continue seeing the very same content again and again, since any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud website hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a truly user-friendly graphical interface, which will give you full control over the caching system. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can restart or deactivate any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a certain Internet site. You can also see an elaborate system log or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have lots of gratified site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company will permit you to employ Varnish once your new account is active, as the content caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software once your site has been published to the web. In case you need more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you will have more flexibility. The Varnish caching platform will enormously reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your sites generate, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform without efforts via your Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/remove any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached data for any of your Internet sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Varnish with all our virtual private server packages at no additional fee, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The only requirement is that the server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each Virtual Private Server plan features a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is enough even for several regularly visited Internet sites. Soon after you set up the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your visitors request, so you’ll notice the tremendously better website load speeds and the less load on your virtual server very soon. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less costly server, as you will not need that many resources to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you run popular websites with many visitors. Maximum results are accomplished if the sites which use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to increase the load speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you’ll also have full control over it via Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI. It’ll take only one single mouse click to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached content for any website that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more knowledgeable, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of virtual memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you run numerous websites on your dedicated server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be visible. You’ll simply need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the site visitors open on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers come with three charge-free IPs, you will have everything you need.
