Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches information for quicker response times. It’s occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor accesses a particular web page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server handles this request and sends back the requested information. If Varnish is activated for a certain site, it will cache its pages at the first visit and in case the user opens a cached page again, the information will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The boosted load speed is a result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will continue seeing the very same content over and over again, as any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our cloud plans. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting packages and you will get a rather simple-to-work-with interface, which will give you full control over the data caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular website. You can also check an exhaustive log or clear the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have a lot of satisfied users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering will permit you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been opened, as the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can use this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been published online. If you’re in need of more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server in a flash. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll have more versatility. The Varnish platform will substantially reduce the load on the machine caused by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage Varnish with ease via the Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cache associated with any of your websites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is included by default with each of the VPS servers that we are offering as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the performance of your sites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several different Internet sites, you’ll notice a substantial reduction in the server load and a tremendously better page load speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a little while while the users navigate the site and as soon as the site content has been cached, you will see the results. One of the pluses of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey package will do the very same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform better, but you will also spare a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order to increase the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia 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 will also have full control over it via Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface. It will take just one click of the mouse to start or remove an instance or to clear the cache for any website that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more trained, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of system memory for caching purposes, so even if you run many websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be detectable. You will just need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 cost-free IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
