Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches information for quicker access. It’s occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and its users. When a visitor accesses a specific web page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the server handles this request and sends back the required info. If Varnish is activated for a certain website, it will cache the pages at the very first visit and in case the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the content will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the server. The boosted speed is an end result of the significantly faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared to any server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the users will keep being served the same content again and again, because any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its memory.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get an amazingly easy-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching system. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can restart or deactivate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular site. You can also view an in-depth log file or delete the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your sites and to have numerous gratified visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish caching platform is an essential part of the default service set that you’ll acquire when you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your websites through our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two features are not tied to each other, you can use a few instances with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single site. The Varnish platform performs best if you use a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with a simple means of restarting any instance. Also, you will be able to clear the cached content with only one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting, so if you buy a server with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make use of the data caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the particular VPS plan that you’ve picked during the registration process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the overall performance of a number of resource-demanding websites, so the faster page browsing speeds and the less load on the VPS server will be discernible. The effect may not be distinguishable momentarily, as Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the site content that people browse, but soon after you activate it, you’ll perceive its full potential. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end server and to give less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be activated and administered with ease from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate GUI and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can see an in-depth log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached content associated with any Internet site and much more. Soon after you set up the Varnish platform for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the web pages accessed by your website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will perceive a substantially better site performance plus a lowered load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a large number of Internet sites on the server.
