Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches data for the sake of faster access. It’s sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a particular webpage, its content is requested by the browser, and then the server handles this browser request and returns the needed information. If Varnish is enabled for a specific site, it will cache the pages on the first request and if the visitor visits a cached page once more, the info will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The improved speed is an end result of the substantially faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared to any server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will keep being served the same content over and over again, because any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its memory.

Varnish in Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI will permit you to remove or to restart any instance, to check comprehensive system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load considerably faster, meaning more happy website users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web application accelerator tool and improve the loading speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of data will be cached for one website or if the available memory will be used by different websites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to delete the cached data using single-click controls. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting, so if you obtain a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take advantage of the content caching platform at no extra cost. Varnish can use different amounts of memory for caching purposes depending on the specific plan that you’ve chosen during the signup procedure, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the performance of a handful of resource-intensive sites, so the better web page browsing speeds and the less load on your VPS server will be perceivable. The result may not be apparent immediately, since Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that people access, but soon after you enable it, you will observe its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end server and to give less money to get the same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting which are ordered with the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated server. The Varnish caching platform can be activated and managed with no effort through Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view an elaborate log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cache associated with any website and much, much more. Shortly after you activate Varnish for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the webpages opened by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will witness a significantly better website performance plus a decreased load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host many Internet sites on the dedicated server.
