Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of faster access. It’s occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a website visitor loads a given webpage, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the needed information. If Varnish is activated for a particular website, it will cache the pages at the very first request and if the visitor accesses a cached page again, the data will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The improved load speed is an end result of the significantly faster response speed that Varnish offers compared to any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the very same content again and again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our website hosting. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting plans and you will get an exceptionally easy-to-use interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or delete any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a certain Internet site. You can also view a comprehensive system log or delete the cache associated with any of the sites. 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 caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have plenty of pleased site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is included in the default set of services that you will obtain in case you decide to host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your websites through our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the sites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two things are not bound to each other, you can use a couple of Internet sites with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish caching platform performs best if you use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you an easy way of rebooting any instance. What’s more, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with only a click.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with all our VPS web hosting if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites depends upon the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to boost the overall performance of multiple websites. It will take a little time for you to detect the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors open, but soon after that you’ll notice the considerably lowered load on the virtual server and the enhanced website browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server plan for websites which would normally require a more pricey web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you will also exert total control over it via Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface. It will take just one single click of the mouse to start or shut down an instance or to delete the cache for any site that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more trained, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of system memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you host a lot of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be apparent. You’ll simply have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include three free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
