Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of quicker response times. It’s sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a browser. When a website visitor opens a specific web page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the server processes this browser request and delivers the necessary data. If Varnish is enabled for a given site, it will cache its pages on the first visit and in case the user accesses a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The boosted speed is an end result of the considerably faster response time that Varnish offers compared with any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the users will continue being served the exact same content again and again, since any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud website hosting. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans and you will get a quite easy-to-work-with GUI, which will give you full control over the caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can restart or remove any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular Internet site. You can also view a detailed system log or erase the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for top performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your websites and to have lots of gratified website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is included by default with all semi-dedicated plans offered by us and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same section will allow you to activate more instances as well, if you want to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple websites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of a single traffic-intensive Internet site or use a number of websites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform if you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you’ll be able to clear the cached data, to see a system log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our VPS hosting plans when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform is offered by default and the memory that it will be able to utilize to cache your website content depends upon the specific Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the performance of multiple websites. It will take some time for you to notice the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors open, but after that you will notice the significantly lowered load on your Virtual Private Server and the accelerated Internet site loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server plan for sites which would usually need a more high-priced web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want the most powerful website hosting solution and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to boost the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional fee on the condition that the server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate interface will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an immense collection of heavy sites, so your server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
