Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for faster response times. It’s sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a browser. When a website visitor opens a particular page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this request and returns the needed information. If Varnish is enabled for a website, it will cache its pages on the first request and if the visitor visits a cached page for a second time, the data will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The improved loading speed is a result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared to any server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will keep being served the same content over and over again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud hosting plans. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans and you will get a rather simple-to-work-with GUI, which will grant you complete control over the content caching system. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or deactivate any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a given website. You can also check an in-depth log file or erase the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have a lot of gratified users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by us will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated account has been activated, as the data caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been published on the Internet. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server instantly. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use 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 Varnish caching platform will substantially decrease the load generated by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform effortlessly through your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached files associated with any of your websites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform comes by default with each of the VPS web hosting plans that we’re offering given that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own several websites, you’ll notice a substantial reduction in the overall server load and a considerably better website loading speed. The platform will need to work for a little while while the visitors browse the pages and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will observe the results. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly VPS package will accomplish the very same job as a more costly one without the platform, so not only will your sites perform substantially better, but you will also spare a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want a more powerful hosting solution and you buy one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to improve the overall performance of your Internet sites at no extra charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly interface will allow you to monitor system processes, to clear the cache or to reboot any instance with one mouse click.

Since your machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
