Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches information for faster access. It’s occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor opens a particular webpage, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server handles this request and returns the required information. If Varnish is enabled for a certain site, it will cache its pages on the first request and in case the visitor visits a cached page once again, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The improved speed is an end result of the substantially faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared to any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the site visitors will continue seeing the very same content over and over again, as any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you’ll get a rather user-friendly graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the data caching system. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or shut down any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a certain website. You can also view an elaborate log or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have numerous gratified visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is an essential part of the default service set that you’ll get if you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your websites via our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this platform simultaneously. Since these two things are not tied to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single website. Varnish performs best if you use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you an easy way of rebooting any instance. Furthermore, you will be able to delete the cached content with only one click.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

Varnish comes by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting offered by our company as long as the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your sites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you manage a number of sites, you will notice a noticeable decrease in the overall server load and a significantly better webpage loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a little while while the users navigate the web pages and once the website content has been cached, you’ll perceive the result. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly Virtual Private Server package will do the same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your websites work considerably better, but you’ll also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you buy any of the dedicated hosting services that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to enhance the performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost as long as the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate GUI will allow you to monitor system processes, to clear the cache or to restart any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a huge number of heavy websites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a gigantic system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. As your dedicated server will include a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
