Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker access. It’s occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a website visitor loads a given webpage, its content is requested by the browser, and then the web server handles this browser request and returns the requested data. If Varnish is enabled for a specific website, it will cache its pages at the first request and in case the user accesses a cached page once more, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The accelerated speed is a result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will continue being served the exact same content over and over again, because any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s intuitive GUI will allow you to disable or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load tremendously faster, which means more happy website users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been opened, as the caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload balancing software once your website has been built. In case you need more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine right away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more freedom. The platform will greatly decrease the load on the server caused by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish effortlessly via the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached data associated with any of your websites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS, so in case you obtain a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the data caching platform at no extra cost. Varnish can use different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you have picked during the registration process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to boost the performance of a handful of resource-requiring websites, so the faster web page browsing speeds and the less load on your virtual server will be noticeable. The result may not be detectable instantly, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that visitors open, but soon after you enable it, you’ll feel its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a lower-end server and to give less money to get the exact same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to enhance the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with us if the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you’ll also have total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface. It will take just one single mouse click to start or remove an instance or to delete the cached data associated with any Internet site that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more practiced, you can also check the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of memory for caching purposes, so even in case you host many Internet sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be noticeable. You’ll simply need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors load on their end. The platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers include 3 free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
