Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of faster access. It’s occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a browser. When a visitor loads a particular web page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server handles this browser request and returns the requested information. If Varnish is activated for a given website, it will cache the pages at the first request and in case the user visits a cached page for a second time, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The boosted loading speed is an end result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the exact same content again and again, since any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given moment. Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface will permit you to remove or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open significantly faster, which means more pleased site visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is offered by default with all semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same section will enable you to activate more instances too, in case you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single traffic-heavy site or run several different websites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform if you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than one click, you will be able to delete the cached contents, to see a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS hosting when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites depends upon the specific Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the work of multiple websites. It’ll take a little time for you to detect the results, since Varnish caches the content that visitors open, but shortly after that you’ll notice the substantially reduced load on the virtual server and the increased Internet site browsing speed. Varnish will permit you to use a lower-end package for Internet sites that would normally need a more expensive hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll acquire Varnish at no extra fee and you will have total control over it via an extremely user-friendly interface – you’ll be able to start, to disable or to reboot an instance, to browse a comprehensive system log, to clear the cached content associated with any website and much more. The Varnish platform will have several GB of virtual memory at its disposal, so even if you host large-scale websites with multiple visitors, you’ll notice the significantly better page load times and the decreased load on the machine. This will happen soon after you begin using the Varnish platform, as it will require a certain amount of time to cache the site content that people request. You can make the most of the platform’s capabilities if the websites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that your dedicated server includes several IP addresses by default, you won’t need to pay anything on top of your monthly charge for the machine itself.
