Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches data for quicker access. It’s occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a particular web page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server processes this browser request and sends back the necessary information. If Varnish is activated for a specific site, it will cache its pages at the very first request and if the user accesses a cached page once again, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the web server. The improved load speed is a result of the much faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will keep seeing the very same content over and over again, since any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting plan and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface will enable you to disable or to restart any instance, to see elaborate logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load tremendously faster, which means more happy site visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans offered by us will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your new account has been set up, as the content caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software once your website has been published to the web. If you need more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server right away. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will have more versatility. The Varnish platform will seriously lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your websites cause, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish without effort through your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/discontinue any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached files for any of your sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform is included by default with each of the VPS web hosting plans that we are offering as long as the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can enhance the performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage a number of Internet sites, you’ll notice a substantial reduction in the server load and a much faster web page load speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a while as the visitors navigate the web pages and once the site content has been cached, you’ll observe the effects. One of the advantages of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly package will do the very same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your sites work much better, but you will also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order to increase the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you will also have complete control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI. It will take only one single mouse click to start or delete an instance or to delete the cached files for any website that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more trained, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of system memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you host plenty of sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be evident. You will simply need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers include three free IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
