Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches content for quicker access. It is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a website visitor opens a certain web page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the server handles this request and delivers the necessary info. If Varnish is enabled for a particular website, it will cache its pages at the very first request and in case the visitor accesses a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The increased loading speed is a result of the significantly faster response speed that Varnish offers as compared to any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will continue seeing the exact same content again and again, because any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you would like to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to switch off or to reboot any instance, to check exhaustive logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open much faster, which means more satisfied users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web application accelerator tool and enhance the speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory exclusively for Varnish at no additional charge and you will be able to add an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide if a lot of data will be cached for one site or if the available memory will be utilized by multiple websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to delete any instance, to check the system log for it or to clear the cached data using 1-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server packages at no extra cost, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The only condition is that the virtual server must come 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 package offers a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is quite sufficient even for several traffic-heavy websites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your visitors access, so you will notice the substantially faster website load speeds and the reduced load on the virtual server very soon. The platform will allow you to use a less pricey VPS, since you won’t need that many resources to warrant the uninterrupted operation of your Internet sites even if you own high-demand sites with plenty of visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the Internet sites that use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you need a powerful hosting solution and you buy one of the Linux dedicated hosting services that we are offering, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to optimize the work of your sites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached contents or to reboot any instance with one click. The minimum amount of system memory that the caching platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous selection of resource-intensive Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a gigantic load while your website visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your dedicated server will include a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
