Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for faster response times. It’s occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a site visitor loads a particular webpage, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the server processes this request and sends back the required info. If Varnish is enabled for a website, it will cache the pages on the first request and in case the visitor opens a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The boosted loading speed is a result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will keep being served the exact same content again and again, since any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI will permit you to terminate or to restart any instance, to check exhaustive system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied website visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web accelerator and boost the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no additional charge and you can activate an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal immediately. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of content will be cached for a single website or if the available memory will be used by multiple sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to cancel any instance, to see the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached data using single-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with each of our VPS servers if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the memory that it will be able to utilize to cache your site content is dependent upon the particular VPS plan that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to enhance the overall performance of numerous websites. It will take a little time for you to detect the effects, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors access, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the substantially less server load and the increased website load speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server plan for websites that would usually require a more expensive hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish content caching platform can be set up and managed without efforts through Hepsia’s time and effort saving interface and, with no more than a click, you can see a detailed system log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached files associated with any site and much more. Shortly after you configure Varnish for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the web pages loaded by the website visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll perceive a significantly better site performance plus a lowered load on the dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you run a lot of Internet sites on the machine.
