Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker response times. It’s sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor accesses a certain webpage, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the requested information. If Varnish is enabled for a specific site, it will cache the pages at the first visit and if the user visits a cached page once again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the web server. The increased load speed is a result of the much faster response speed that Varnish offers as compared to any server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the users will continue seeing the very same content again and again, since any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud website hosting package and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of content that the platform can store at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to disable or to reboot any instance, to check detailed system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open tremendously faster, meaning more pleased site users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will enable you to add more instances too, in case you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with more sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-intensive website or run several websites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents, to view a system log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting packages, so if you acquire a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to take advantage of the content caching platform at no extra charge. Varnish can use different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes based on the specific VPS plan that you’ve selected at signup, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to optimize the work of a handful of large-size websites, so the better website load speeds and the less load on your Virtual Private Server will be noticeable. The result may not be visible momentarily, as Varnish will need some time to cache the content that people open, but shortly after you set it up, you’ll feel its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end server and to give less cash to get the very same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated web hosting which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish content caching platform can be set up and managed with no effort from Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can see a detailed log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached content for any website and much, much more. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the web pages opened by your site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a substantially faster website performance plus a reduced load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host a large number of Internet sites on the dedicated server.
