Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches information for faster access. It’s occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a site visitor loads a particular web page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server handles this request and returns the needed data. If Varnish is activated for a specific website, it will cache the pages at the very first request and if the visitor opens a cached page for a second time, the info will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the server. The boosted load speed is an end result of the much faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the same content again and again, because any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s potential and increase your websites’ speed regardless of the website hosting package that you have chosen and you can activate and configure the platform with a couple of clicks through the simple-to-work-with interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you have plenty of content on a certain website and you receive plenty of visitors, more system memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will provide you with simple 1-click buttons for deleting or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with each website and for viewing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is offered as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by our company and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same section will enable you to enable more instances as well, in case you would like to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one single regularly visited site or use several different sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you use a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will give you total control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents, to see a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS web hosting plans, so if you buy a VPS with this Control Panel, you will be able to use the content caching platform at no additional fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for caching purposes depending on the very sever setup that you’ve chosen on the order page, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to boost the work of a handful of resource-consuming sites, so the faster page loading speeds and the reduced load on the server will be noticeable. The effect may not be observable instantly, since Varnish will require some time to cache the content that visitors access, but soon after you enable it, you’ll observe its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server and to give less cash to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer, you’ll be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to enhance the work of your sites at no additional fee on the condition that the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will allow you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cache or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a large collection of repeatedly visited Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a huge system load while your website visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your server will come with several dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
