Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of faster access. It’s sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a site visitor opens a given webpage, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the needed content. If Varnish is enabled for a particular website, it will cache its pages at the first request and if the visitor visits a cached page for a second time, the information will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The accelerated load speed is an end result of the substantially faster response speed that Varnish offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the users will keep seeing the exact same content over and over again, because any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our Linux website hosting packages. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting packages and you’ll get a rather simple-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching platform. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or terminate any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a certain site. You can also check a comprehensive system log or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have lots of satisfied site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is an essential part of the default service set that you’ll get in case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your websites via our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two features aren’t bound to each other, you can use several Internet sites with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single website. Varnish performs best when you use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple means of rebooting any instance. Also, you will be able to delete the cached files with only one click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our VPS web hosting packages when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform is offered by default and the memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your site content depends upon the given Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the work of numerous websites. It’ll take a little time for you to detect the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors request, but soon after that you will notice the significantly less load on the virtual machine and the accelerated site load speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to make use of a lower-end VPS package for websites which would normally require a more high-priced web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll get the Varnish content caching platform at no extra cost and you’ll exert complete control over it via an amazingly simple-to-use graphical interface – you will be able to start, to deactivate or to restart an instance, to check an elaborate log, to clear the cached data associated with any website and much more. The Varnish platform will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you own heavy websites with an immense number of visitors, you will notice the tremendously better website loading speeds and the reduced load on your dedicated server. This will happen soon after you begin using Varnish, since it will need some time to cache the site content that people browse. You can take full advantage of the platform’s capacity in case the Internet sites that are using it also use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that your dedicated server includes several IP addresses by default, you won’t have to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the machine itself.
