Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of faster access. It is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a website visitor opens a particular page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the server handles this browser request and delivers the requested information. If Varnish is enabled for a certain site, it will cache the pages on the very first visit and in case the user visits a cached page once more, the info will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The boosted loading speed is a result of the considerably 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 being served the same content again and again, as any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud packages. You can add it to your web hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages and you’ll get an exceptionally intuitive GUI, which will grant you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or delete any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a given Internet site. You can also see an exhaustive log or delete the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your websites and to have lots of pleased visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the website accelerator tool and improve the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of memory dedicated to Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages.

You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of data will be cached for a single website or if the available memory will be utilized by multiple Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to delete any instance, to check the system log associated with it or to clear the cached files using single-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting, so in case you order a VPS with this Control Panel, you will be able to use the data caching platform at no extra charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes based on the very sever setup that you have selected during the order process, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the overall performance of several resource-requiring Internet sites, so the faster web page load speeds and the decreased load on the virtual machine will be noticeable. The effect may not be detectable immediately, since the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the website content that people access, but shortly after you set it up, you will witness its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.
