Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches content for quicker access. It’s sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and its users. When a website visitor loads a particular web page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this request and returns the required content. If Varnish is activated for a given site, it will cache its pages on the first visit and in case the visitor opens a cached page once more, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The boosted loading speed is a result of the substantially faster response time that Varnish offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the users will continue seeing the same content over and over again, since any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its memory.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and optimize the loading speed of your sites irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you have selected and you can enable and configure the data caching platform with a few clicks from the intuitive interface offered by our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to select two separate things – how many websites will employ the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 MB and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you have plenty of content on a specific website and you attract lots of website visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple one-click controls for deleting or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache for any Internet site and for viewing comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your new account has been opened, as the content caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this load distribution software once your site has been launched. If you’re in need of more memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server in a flash. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will have more freedom. The caching platform will substantially decrease the load on the server that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly from the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/remove any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cache for any of your sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS web hosting if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to use to cache your website content is dependent upon the particular VPS plan that you have selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have no less than several hundred MB of memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to optimize the performance of numerous sites. It will take some time for you to detect the results, since Varnish caches the content that site visitors open, but after that you’ll notice the considerably less load on your virtual server and the accelerated Internet site load speed. Varnish will permit you to use a lower-end VPS plan for websites which would normally require a more costly web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the server. The Varnish data caching platform can be enabled and administered effortlessly via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI and, with no more than one single click, you can check a comprehensive log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached files for any site and much more. Shortly after you enable Varnish for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages accessed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will perceive a tremendously better site performance as well as a lowered load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you run multiple Internet sites on the dedicated machine.
