Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of quicker access. It’s occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a browser. When a visitor accesses a specific webpage, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the required content. If Varnish is activated for a site, it will cache the pages on the very first visit and if the user visits a cached page once more, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The improved loading speed is a result of the considerably faster response time that Varnish offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the same content over and over again, as any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting plan and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI will allow you to delete or to restart any instance, to view elaborate system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open much faster, which means more happy visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we’re offering will permit you to use Varnish once your new account has been created, since the platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload distribution software as soon as your website has been published online. If you are in need of more system memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server momentarily. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The platform will immensely lower the load on the server that your websites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without any effort from the Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached content associated with any of your websites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is included by default with each of the VPS web hosting plans that we offer as long as the machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your websites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you manage several different sites, you will notice an immense decrease in the server load and a significantly faster webpage load speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a little while as the visitors browse the web pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you’ll perceive the effects. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey package will accomplish the same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites work considerably better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want the most powerful hosting solution and you buy one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer, you’ll be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the work of your websites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-use GUI will permit you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cache or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimal amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge selection of repeatedly visited Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with a huge system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
