Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches content for faster response times. It is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor opens a specific web page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the requested data. If Varnish is activated for a site, it will cache its pages on the very first request and in case the visitor visits a cached page once more, the info will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The increased loading speed is an end result of the substantially faster response speed that Varnish offers compared to any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will keep being served the very same content again and again, since any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and increase the load speed of your websites irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you have selected and you can enable and configure the platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse via the simple-to-work-with interface offered by our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to select two different things – how many websites will employ the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you have lots of content on a specific site and you get a lot of website visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you easy one-click buttons for deactivating or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache for each website and for checking detailed system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated services offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your brand-new semi-dedicated server account is active, as the content caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this load distribution software once your website has been published to the web. If you need more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server in an instant. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The platform will noticeably lower the server load that your websites produce, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform effortlessly from your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache for any of your Internet sites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our virtual private server packages at no extra cost, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The one and only condition is that the VPS server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each VPS plan comes with a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you will get at least several hundred MB, which is sufficient even for multiple popular Internet sites. Shortly after you set up Varnish, it will begin caching the content that your visitors open, so you’ll notice the tremendously faster site loading speeds and the less load on the Virtual Private Server in no time. The platform will allow you to use a less high-priced VPS, as you will not require that much power to warrant the correct operation of your websites even if you’ve got high-demand Internet sites with a lot of visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the sites that use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you want a more powerful web hosting solution and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated web hosting offered by our company, you’ll be able to use Varnish to enhance the performance of your websites at no additional fee as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one click. The smallest amount of system memory that the caching platform can use to cache content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a large number of busy sites, so your server will be able to deal with a huge system load while your site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
