Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches data for faster response times. It’s sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a website visitor opens a particular webpage, its content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the necessary information. If Varnish is enabled for a given site, it will cache its pages at the very first request and if the user accesses a cached page once again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The improved load speed is an end result of the much faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared with any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the same content again and again, as any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our web hosting packages. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages and you will get a rather intuitive GUI, which will give you full control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or terminate any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a particular Internet site. You can also view a comprehensive system log file or erase the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your sites and to have a lot of satisfied website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the accelerator and optimize the speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you momentarily. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether lots of data will be cached for one website or whether the available memory will be used by multiple websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to delete any instance, to see the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached data using single-click controls. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can get a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting packages, so in case you obtain a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the content caching platform at no additional charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for caching purposes depending on the very VPS plan that you have chosen during the server order process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the performance of a number of resource-consuming sites, so the faster page browsing speeds and the less load on the Virtual Private Server will be perceptible. The result may not be observable instantly, as the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the site content that users request, but soon after you enable it, you’ll observe its full capacity. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful server and to give less money to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish to boost the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no additional charge, but you’ll also exert total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI. It’ll take only one mouse click to start or stop an instance or to delete the cached files associated with any Internet site that is using Varnish and in case you are more practiced, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of memory for data caching purposes, so even if you host many Internet sites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be obvious. You’ll simply need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers come with 3 free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
