Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of faster access. It is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a site visitor opens a certain page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the requested content. If Varnish is enabled for a website, it will cache the pages on the very first request and if the visitor visits a cached page for a second time, the content will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The increased speed is a result of the considerably faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the users will keep being served the exact same content again and again, as any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface will allow you to stop or to reboot any instance, to check exhaustive system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load tremendously faster, meaning more happy site visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included by default with all Linux semi-dedicated services that we offer and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in the account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same Upgrades section will allow you to add more instances too, in case you would like to use Varnish with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one traffic-heavy site or use several different sites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cache, to view a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish platform is included by default with all Linux VPS services that we are offering given that the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got several websites, you will notice an enormous decrease in the server load and a much faster website load speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a little while while the visitors browse the website and once the content has been cached, you will notice the results. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced plan will accomplish the exact same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work better, but you’ll also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you order any of the Linux dedicated hosting that we’re offering, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the work of your sites at no extra fee as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its intuitive GUI will allow you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cached data or to reboot any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimal amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for an immense selection of traffic-consuming websites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a gigantic system load while your website visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
