Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker access. It is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a website visitor loads a given web page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this request and returns the needed data. If Varnish is enabled for a particular site, it will cache its pages at the first visit and if the user opens a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The improved loading speed is a result of the substantially faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared to any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will continue seeing the very same content again and again, since any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its memory.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each Linux web hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving GUI will enable you to shut down or to restart any instance, to see exhaustive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load much faster, meaning more happy visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web application accelerator tool and boost the load speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for Varnish at no additional fee and you can create an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated plans. If you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of data will be cached for one site or whether the available memory will be utilized by several sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to delete any instance, to check the system log for it or to delete the cached files using single-click controls. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our VPS web hosting when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache your website content depends on the particular plan that you have selected, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to enhance the work of multiple Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to see the results, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors access, but soon thereafter you will notice the significantly reduced load on the server and the accelerated website load speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for sites which would normally need a more pricey web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you need a more powerful website hosting solution and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated hosting services that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no additional charge on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will allow you to monitor system processes, to delete the cache or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The smallest amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an enormous collection of resource-heavy sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle an immense system load while your site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your server will include several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
