Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of faster response times. It’s occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor opens a particular web page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the needed content. If Varnish is enabled for a particular site, it will cache its pages on the first visit and if the user accesses a cached page for a second time, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The improved speed is a result of the considerably faster response speed that Varnish offers compared to any server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the users will keep seeing the exact same content again and again, since any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux website hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you would like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface will enable you to delete or to restart any instance, to view detailed logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load much faster, which means more happy site visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish platform is an essential part of the standard service set that you will obtain in case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your Internet sites via our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, 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, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two features are not bound to each other, you can use several instances with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single Internet site. The Varnish platform performs best when you use a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you an easy means of rebooting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to clear the cached data with only one click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our virtual private server plans at no extra charge, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only requirement is that the Virtual Private Server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each package includes a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several popular sites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your site visitors browse, so you’ll notice the much better webpage loading speeds and the lowered load on the virtual server in no time. Varnish will permit you to use a less high-priced server, since you won’t require that much power to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you have heavy-traffic sites with multiple visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the sites which use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you acquire any of the Linux dedicated web hosting offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to improve the overall performance of your websites at no additional cost on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast collection of large-scale Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with an immense load while your visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your machine will include several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
