Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of quicker access. It is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor accesses a specific web page, its content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the requested data. If Varnish is activated for a specific site, it will cache its pages at the very first visit and if the user opens a cached page for a second time, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The boosted loading speed is a result of the significantly faster response speed that Varnish offers compared with any web server software. Of course, this does not mean that the site 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 Varnish saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features 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 employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to turn off or to restart any instance, to view in-depth logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open much faster, which means more pleased site visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator and optimize the load speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for Varnish at no extra cost and you can add an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal momentarily. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of content will be cached for one website or if the memory will be used by multiple sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to remove any instance, to see the system log associated with it or to clear the cached data using one-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish platform comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting offered by us as long as the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your sites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got a handful of sites, you’ll notice an immense decrease in the overall server load and a tremendously faster website load speed. The platform will have to work for a little while while the visitors browse the pages and once the site content has been cached, you will notice the results. One of the advantages of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive VPS package will do the very same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your websites work considerably better, but you’ll also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be enabled and administered without effort from the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI and, with no more than one click, you can view an exhaustive log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached data associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Soon after you configure Varnish for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will observe a tremendously faster site performance as well as a lowered load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you run a large number of sites on the dedicated machine.
