Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches content for faster access. It’s sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and its users. When a site visitor accesses a specific page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the necessary information. If Varnish is activated for a site, it will cache the pages on the very first visit and if the visitor visits a cached page again, the data will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The boosted speed is an end result of the substantially 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 very same content again and again, because any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your sites under a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with a few mouse clicks through your Control Panel. The content caching platform is available as an optional upgrade with all our shared plans and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they are not tied directly to each other, so you can choose whether you need lots of memory for one single large-size site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of Varnish if the sites use a dedicated IP address. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/restart/cancel an instance, delete the cached content independently for each website that uses Varnish or check an in-depth system log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting services that we are offering will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been created, as the data caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload balancing software once your site has been launched online. In case you are in need of more system memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine straight away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will have more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will substantially decrease the server load generated by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly via the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content associated with any of your Internet sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS

You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our Linux VPS services when you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered by default and the system memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your websites is dependent on the specific VPS plan that you have picked, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to improve the overall performance of numerous sites. It will take a little time for you to observe the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors browse, but after that you will notice the significantly less load on the VPS and the enhanced website browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS package for Internet sites which would typically require a more expensive hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you acquire any of the dedicated hosting that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to improve the performance of your websites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cache or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large selection of regularly visited sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with an immense load while your website visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
