Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for quicker access. It is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a browser. When a website visitor opens a specific web page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the server processes this browser request and delivers the required info. If Varnish is activated for a specific website, it will cache the pages on the very first visit and if the visitor visits a cached page once again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The increased loading speed is an end result of the much faster response speed that Varnish offers as compared to any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the users will keep being served the exact same content again and again, as any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its memory.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared hosting package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, displays the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface will enable you to deactivate or to restart any instance, to view 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 site will load substantially faster, meaning more satisfied visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated account is active, since the data caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software as soon as your website has been taken online. If you are in need of more system memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server momentarily. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll have more freedom. The caching platform will greatly decrease the load on the server that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without efforts through the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached content for any of your Internet sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish platform is included by default with all Linux VPS hosting packages that we’re offering given that the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can enhance the overall performance of your websites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got several different websites, you’ll notice a considerable reduction in the overall server load and a substantially better site load speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a little while while the users browse the pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you’ll observe the effects. One of the pluses of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive Virtual Private Server plan will do the exact same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work much better, but you’ll also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you order one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional fee on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate GUI will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached data or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The minimum amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for an enormous number of resource-heavy Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a massive load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your server will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
