Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches data for the sake of quicker access. It’s occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor accesses a certain page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server handles this request and delivers the necessary info. If Varnish is activated for a particular website, it will cache the pages at the very first request and in case the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The accelerated speed is a result of the significantly faster response speed that Varnish offers compared to any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the visitors will continue being served the exact same content again and again, as any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud web hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you will get an amazingly easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you full control over the data caching system. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or cancel any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a certain Internet site. You can also see an exhaustive system log file or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you will be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for top performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your websites and to have lots of gratified visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included in the standard set of services that you will obtain if you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your sites through our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish 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 Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a few instances with the default amount of memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single website. The Varnish platform works best if you assign a dedicated IP to the sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with an easy means of restarting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with just one mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS web hosting if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites is dependent on the given VPS package that you have selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to boost the performance of numerous websites. It will take some time for you to observe the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors open, but soon thereafter you will notice the substantially reduced load on the VPS and the enhanced Internet site loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a lower-end plan for Internet sites that would usually require a more pricey web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you get any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no additional charge on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to keep an eye on platform processes, to delete the cached files or to restart any instance with a click. The smallest amount of memory that Varnish can employ to cache website content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an enormous number of repeatedly visited Internet sites, so your server will be able to deal with a massive load while your visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. Since your server will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
