Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches information for quicker access. It’s occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and its users. When a visitor accesses a given page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the needed information. If Varnish is enabled for a particular website, it will cache the pages at the first visit and if the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The accelerated speed is a result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared to any server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the exact same content over and over again, as any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s potential and enhance the speed of your websites irrespective of the website hosting plan that you’ve picked and you can add and set up the content caching platform with a couple of mouse clicks using the easy-to-work-with interface offered by our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you will be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will use Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got plenty of content on a certain site and you draw many visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy one-click buttons for stopping or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for each website and for viewing in-depth logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated services that we offer will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand new account has been created, as the content caching platform is offered 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 distribution software once your website has been published on the Internet. If you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server instantly. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more versatility. The platform will immensely decrease the load on the machine that your websites produce, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish with no effort through your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache associated with any of your sites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our virtual private server plans at no extra charge, since the platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole prerequisite is that the virtual machine must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each Virtual Private Server package features a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you’ll get minimum several hundred MB, which is quite sufficient even for several traffic-intensive sites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your website visitors open, so you will notice the significantly better Internet site loading speeds and the reduced load on your virtual server very soon. The platform will permit you to use a less high-priced server, since you will not need that much power to sustain the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you own traffic-heavy sites with lots of visitors. Optimum results are accomplished if the sites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use Varnish to increase the speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you’ll also exert complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface. It’ll take only one single click to start or deactivate an instance or to clear the cache for any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more trained, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run a huge number of sites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be obvious. You’ll simply have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors open on their end. The platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers come with three charge-free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
