Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches data for the sake of faster response times. It is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a site visitor opens a specific page, its content is requested by the browser, and then the server processes this browser request and delivers the required information. If Varnish is activated for a certain website, it will cache its pages at the very first request and if the visitor visits a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the server. The boosted loading speed is an end result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared to any server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will keep seeing the exact same content again and again, as any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with several clicks of the mouse via your Control Panel. The data caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting packages and you can select how many sites will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be used for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they aren’t directly tied to each other, so you can decide if you need a lot of memory for a single large-size site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can use the full potential of Varnish in case the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/restart/cancel an instance, clear the cached content individually for each website which uses Varnish or see an exhaustive system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated packages offered by our company will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, since the data caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this load distribution software as soon as your site has been built. If you are in need of more system memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server in an instant. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll enjoy more flexibility. The Varnish platform will substantially decrease the server load that your websites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort through your Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/disable any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached content for any of your websites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

Varnish is included by default with all VPS hosting that we offer on the condition that the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the overall performance of your sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got several different websites, you will notice a serious reduction in the server load and a significantly better page load speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a little while as the users navigate the site and once the website content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the results. One of the advantages of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey VPS plan will accomplish the very same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your sites perform better, but you will also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish to boost the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you’ll also have total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It will take just one click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cache associated with any website that’s using Varnish and if you’re more advanced, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for data caching purposes, so even if you host plenty of websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be distinguishable. You’ll only need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our servers come with 3 free IPs, you will have everything you need.
