Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of faster response times. It is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and its users. When a website visitor loads a given page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the needed info. If Varnish is activated for a particular site, it will cache the pages at the very first request and if the user accesses a cached page once more, the data will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The improved load speed is an end result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any web server software. Of course, this does not mean that the site visitors will continue seeing the exact same content over and over again, as any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our cloud web hosting services. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you’ll get a truly easy-to-work-with GUI, which will grant you full control over the data caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can restart or stop any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a certain website. You can also see an elaborate log or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have numerous gratified visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can use the web application accelerator and speed up any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of system memory exclusively for Varnish at no additional fee and you will be able to enable an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you momentarily. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if a lot of data will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be utilized by several sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to discontinue any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to clear the cached content using one-click controls. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can get a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish caching platform comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting services offered by us on the condition that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the work of your sites with only a few mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you run a number of sites, you’ll notice a considerable reduction in the server load and a significantly better webpage loading speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a while while the users navigate the web pages and as soon as the content has been cached, you’ll notice the results. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey plan will accomplish the same job as a more costly one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting services which are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish caching platform can be configured and managed without any effort via Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view an exhaustive system log, add or restart an instance, clear the cache for any website and much, much more. Soon after you set up the Varnish platform for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages loaded by your visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you’ll observe a substantially faster site performance as well as a lowered load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you host a large number of Internet sites on the server.
