Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches data for faster response times. It is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor accesses a given page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the needed content. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache the pages at the very first request and if the visitor opens a cached page once again, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The increased load speed is an end result of the much faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will keep seeing the exact same content over and over again, as any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our cloud hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a rather simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the caching platform. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can restart or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a certain website. You can also view a detailed log or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your sites and to have many pleased website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will enable you to enable more instances as well, if you wish to use the Varnish platform with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single traffic-intensive website or run several websites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click, you will be able to clear the cache, to view a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS hosting, so if you obtain a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take full advantage of the caching platform at no additional cost. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the very configuration that you’ve picked during the signup process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to boost the overall performance of several resource-consuming Internet sites, so the better page load speeds and the lowered load on your virtual machine will be perceptible. The result may not be observable momentarily, as Varnish will need some time to cache the website content that people request, but soon after you enable it, you will witness its full potential. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS server and to give less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be set up and administered without efforts via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use graphical interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can browse an exhaustive system log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached data for any site and much, much more. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the webpages browsed by the website visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll perceive a significantly better website performance as well as a lowered load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host a large number of sites on the machine.
