Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches content for quicker response times. It is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a browser. When a visitor opens a certain webpage, the content is requested by the browser, and then the server handles this request and sends back the necessary content. If Varnish is activated for a particular website, it will cache its pages on the first request and in case the visitor visits a cached page once again, the data will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The accelerated loading speed is an end result of the significantly faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will continue being served the exact same content again and again, since any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and accelerate the load speed of your websites regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you’ve picked and you can activate and configure the data caching platform with several clicks from the easy-to-work-with graphical interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many Internet sites will employ Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you have a lot of content on a certain site and you receive lots of site visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy 1-click buttons for switching off or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any Internet site and for viewing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting services offered by us will allow you to employ Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated account has been activated, since the caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software once your site has been built. In case you need more system memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server in an instant. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The platform will noticeably decrease the load on the semi-dedicated server that your sites cause, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without any effort via your Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached content associated with any of your websites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with each of the Linux VPS web hosting services that we are offering on the condition that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the performance of your websites with only a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you’ve got several different Internet sites, you’ll notice a great decrease in the server load and a much faster web page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a little while as the visitors browse the web pages and once the website content has been cached, you’ll notice the effects. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced VPS plan will accomplish the same job as a more costly one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work considerably better, but you’ll also spare some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to boost the loading 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 to be used at no extra fee, but you’ll also exert full control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use interface. It’ll take only one single click of the mouse to start or terminate an instance or to delete the cached files associated with any website that’s using Varnish and in case you are more trained, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you host a lot of websites on your machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their performance will be observable. You will just have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers include 3 free IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
