Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of faster access. It is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a visitor loads a specific page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the requested content. If Varnish is activated for a certain site, it will cache the pages at the very first visit and in case the user visits a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the server. The boosted loading speed is a result of the much faster response time that Varnish offers compared to any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the visitors will keep being served the very same content over and over again, because any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud website hosting plans. You can add it to your hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you’ll get an amazingly simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you full control over the caching system. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or deactivate any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific website. You can also view a detailed log or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have plenty of pleased users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all semi-dedicated plans offered by us and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in the account. If you’re in need of more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will allow you to add more instances as well, if you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple Internet sites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of one large-size website or run several sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform if you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you’ll be able to delete the cached files, to view a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish content caching platform comes by default with each of the VPS web hosting plans offered by our company as long as the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the performance of your sites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run several websites, you’ll notice a significant decrease in the overall server load and a significantly better page loading speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a little while while the users browse the site and once the website content has been cached, you will notice the effect. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly Virtual Private Server plan will accomplish the very same job as a more costly one without the platform, so not only will your sites work much better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish data caching platform can be configured and administered with ease via Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can view an in-depth log, create or restart an instance, clear the cache for any site and much, much more. Soon after you set up the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the webpages requested by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will witness a considerably better website performance in addition to a lowered server load. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host lots of sites on your dedicated machine.
