Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker response times. It is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a site visitor loads a certain page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the server processes this browser request and delivers the necessary information. If Varnish is activated for a specific website, it will cache the pages at the first visit and if the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The accelerated loading speed is a result of the substantially faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the users will continue seeing the very same content over and over again, because any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our shared website hosting plans. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get a really simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or remove any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular website. You can also view an exhaustive system log file or clear the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your websites and to have lots of pleased visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is included by default with all semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by our company and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will enable you to activate more instances too, if you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single large-size site or run several different sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you use a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one single click, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents, to see a system log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS plans in case you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is available by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your website content is dependent upon the specific Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal exclusively for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to optimize the overall performance of numerous websites. It’ll take a little time for you to notice the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors access, but soon thereafter you will notice the significantly reduced load on the VPS and the improved Internet site load speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end plan for sites that would usually require a more expensive hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to improve the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you’ll also have complete control over it via Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface. It will take just a click to start or terminate an instance or to clear the cached files for any Internet site that is using Varnish and in case you are more advanced, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of system memory for website content caching purposes, so even in case you run multiple Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their performance will be distinguishable. You’ll only need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers come with three free-of-charge IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
