Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for faster access. It is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a browser. When a site visitor loads a given webpage, its content is requested by the browser, and then the server processes this browser request and sends back the requested content. If Varnish is activated for a particular website, it will cache its pages at the very first request and if the user accesses a cached page once more, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the web server. The boosted speed is an end result of the much faster response time that Varnish offers as compared with any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep seeing the same content over and over again, as any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

In case you host your sites under a website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with several clicks from your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is available as an upgrade with all our hosting packages and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached data. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they aren’t directly linked to each other, so you can decide if you want plenty of memory for a single large-scale site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can use the full potential of Varnish if the websites use a dedicated IP address. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can quickly start/restart/discontinue an instance, delete the cached data individually for each website which employs Varnish or see an elaborate log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us will permit you to use Varnish once your new semi-dedicated account has been created, as the caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can use this load distribution software as soon as you launch your site. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more versatility. The caching platform will considerably decrease the load that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly through the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/delete any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached data associated with any of your sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is included by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages that we are offering given that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got a handful of Internet sites, you’ll notice a noticeable decrease in the server load and a considerably faster page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while as the visitors navigate the web pages and once the content has been cached, you will see the results. One of the pros of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive package will do the exact same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites work considerably better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to improve the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no additional charge, but you will also have total control over it through Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface. It’ll take only one single mouse click to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached files for any site that is using Varnish and in case you are more proficient, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of system memory for caching purposes, so even if you run an immense number of websites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their performance will be visible. You’ll simply need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the website visitors access on their end. The platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers come with three charge-free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
