Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches data for the sake of quicker access. It’s sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor opens a particular web page, its content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the required data. If Varnish is activated for a specific website, it will cache its pages at the very first request and in case the user accesses a cached page once again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The boosted loading speed is an end result of the much faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will continue seeing the exact same content again and again, because any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s full potential and increase the load speed of your websites regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you have selected and you can activate and set up the content caching platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse through the easy-to-use graphical interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many sites will employ the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you have plenty of content on a particular Internet site and you receive a lot of site visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will offer you easy one-click buttons for deleting or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for each website and for seeing in-depth system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been opened, as the content caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software once your site has been launched online. If you need more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server immediately. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll enjoy more flexibility. The Varnish caching platform will noticeably lower the load on the server generated by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without efforts through the Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/remove any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache for any of your websites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use Varnish with any of our virtual private server packages at no extra cost, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with just a few mouse clicks. Each Virtual Private Server plan features a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple large Internet sites. Shortly after you set up Varnish, it will start caching the content that your visitors open, so you’ll notice the much better webpage loading speeds and the less load on your virtual server in no time. The platform will allow you to use a less pricey server, as you will not require that many resources to guarantee the proper operation of your sites even if you own resource-requiring Internet sites with lots of visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the websites which use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish platform can be set up and administered with no effort from Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can check a detailed log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cache associated with any website and much more. Shortly after you set up Varnish for a certain domain or subdomain, it will start caching the pages browsed by your visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll witness a considerably faster website performance in addition to a decreased load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host a lot of sites on the dedicated machine.
