Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches info for faster response times. It’s occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a website visitor loads a particular webpage, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the requested info. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache its pages at the first visit and if the user accesses a cached page again, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The improved loading speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that Varnish offers compared with any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep being served the same content over and over again, as any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux shared hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages and you will get a pretty easy-to-work-with GUI, which will grant you full control over the content caching platform. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can restart or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific website. You can also check an exhaustive system log or clear the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have many pleased website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your account. In case you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will allow you to create more instances too, if you would like to use Varnish with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single traffic-intensive Internet site or run several different Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform if you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to delete the cached contents, to check a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

Varnish comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting that we offer as long as the virtual machine is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the performance of your sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you own several different websites, you’ll notice a serious reduction in the server load and a much better webpage loading speed. The platform will have to work for a while as the users browse the site and as soon as the content has been cached, you’ll see the results. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly plan will do the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work much better, but you’ll also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be configured and administered without any effort via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can view a comprehensive system log, create or restart an instance, clear the cached content for any Internet site and much more. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the pages browsed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a substantially faster website performance in addition to a decreased load. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a large number of websites on the dedicated machine.
