Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of quicker access. It’s sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and its users. When a site visitor opens a particular page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the server processes this request and sends back the requested data. If Varnish is activated for a given website, it will cache the pages at the first visit and in case the user opens a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The boosted load speed is an end result of the significantly faster response time that Varnish offers as compared to any server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will continue seeing the same content again and again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our website hosting service. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages and you’ll get a very simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or remove any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a given site. You can also view a comprehensive log file or erase the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your websites and to have lots of happy site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is offered as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting service offered by us and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you need more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same Upgrades section will enable you to create more instances as well, if you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with more websites. The two things can be added independently – you can cache the content of one traffic-intensive website or run several websites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you will be able to clear the cache, to check a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS servers, so in case you obtain a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to use the content caching platform at no additional cost. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for caching purposes based on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen on the order form, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to boost the performance of several different large-scale Internet sites, so the better site browsing speeds and the decreased server load will be perceivable. The result may not be visible right away, since Varnish will need some time to cache the site content that users browse, but shortly after you set it up, you’ll perceive its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want a powerful hosting solution and you obtain any of the dedicated servers offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the Varnish platform to optimize the work of your Internet sites at no additional charge as long as the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will enable you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with one click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large number of resource-intensive websites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a massive load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
