Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches info for quicker response times. It is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a browser. When a website visitor accesses a certain web page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server handles this request and delivers the needed data. If Varnish is activated for a specific website, it will cache the pages on the first visit and if the visitor opens a cached page once more, the information will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The improved speed is a result of the substantially faster response speed that Varnish offers compared to any web server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep being served the same content over and over again, as any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting plan and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to disable or to reboot any instance, to check exhaustive system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load much faster, meaning more pleased users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we offer will allow you to use Varnish once your brand-new account has been set up, since the platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load distribution software once your site has been launched online. If you need more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server right away. 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 goes to say that you’ll have more flexibility. The Varnish platform will immensely reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort from the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache associated with any of your sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish caching platform is included by default with all VPS hosting plans offered by our company given that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you have a handful of Internet sites, you will notice a substantial decrease in the overall server load and a tremendously better web page load speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while as the visitors navigate the site and as soon as the site content has been cached, you’ll see the effect. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly VPS plan will do the very same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites perform better, but you will also spare some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you obtain any of the dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to enhance the work of your websites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cached files or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a vast collection of traffic-consuming websites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a huge load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your server will include several dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
