Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches info for faster response times. It’s sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a browser. When a website visitor accesses a given page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server handles this request and delivers the necessary content. If Varnish is enabled for a given site, it will cache its pages on the first visit and if the user visits a cached page once more, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the web server. The boosted speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that Varnish offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will continue being served the same content again and again, since any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its memory.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux hosting. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting packages and you’ll get an amazingly intuitive interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can restart or cancel any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a certain website. You can also see an exhaustive log or erase the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your sites and to have plenty of happy website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is part of the standard set of services that you will receive in case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your sites through our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this platform at the same time. Since these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a couple of websites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single site. Varnish works best when you get a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you an easy way of restarting any instance. On top of that, you will be able to delete the cached files with just one single mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS web hosting packages in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is offered by default and the memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your website content depends on the particular VPS plan that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the performance of numerous websites. It will take some time for you to see the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors request, but shortly after that you will notice the considerably reduced load and the accelerated Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS package for websites which would typically require a more high-priced hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the server. The Varnish data caching platform can be activated and administered without any effort from Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one single click, you can check an exhaustive system log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached content associated with any website and much, much more. Soon after you enable Varnish for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the web pages opened by the visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll observe a considerably better site performance as well as a decreased load on your dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run plenty of websites on your server.
