Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches content for quicker access. It is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor opens a certain webpage, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the needed content. If Varnish is enabled for a given website, it will cache the pages at the very first visit and if the user accesses a cached page once again, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The improved loading speed is a result of the substantially faster response speed that Varnish offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the users will continue being served the same content again and again, as any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to shut down or to restart any instance, to check in-depth system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load considerably faster, meaning more happy visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been activated, as the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this workload distribution software as soon as your website has been published online. If you are in need of more system memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in an instant. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more flexibility. The caching platform will greatly lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine caused by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly from your Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached files for any of your sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish caching platform comes by default with all VPS web hosting packages that we’re offering on the condition that the virtual machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the work of your sites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run several different sites, you will notice an immense reduction in the overall server load and a much faster page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while while the users browse the pages and once the site content has been cached, you’ll see the results. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive package will accomplish the exact same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work substantially better, but you’ll also spare some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated server. The Varnish data caching platform can be configured and managed without effort through Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can view a detailed system log, create or restart an instance, delete the cache for any Internet site and much more. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform for a given domain or subdomain, it will start caching the pages opened by the site visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll witness a tremendously better website performance as well as a decreased load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you run lots of websites on the dedicated server.
