Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of faster response times. It is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and its users. When a site visitor loads a given web page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this request and returns the requested information. If Varnish is enabled for a certain website, it will cache the pages at the first visit and if the user visits a cached page again, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The improved speed is a result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any web server software. Of course, this does not mean that the visitors will keep seeing the very same content over and over again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you wish to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface will permit you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load considerably faster, which means more pleased website users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is part of the standard set of services that you’ll acquire when you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your sites through our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this 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 platform at the same time. Since these two things are not linked to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default amount of memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single site. Varnish performs best when you use a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you a simple way of rebooting any instance. What’s more, you will be able to delete the cached files with just a click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS servers, so in case you get a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take full advantage of the content caching platform at no extra cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes based on the particular plan that you’ve selected during the signup process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to optimize the performance of a handful of resource-consuming Internet sites, so the faster web page browsing speeds and the decreased load on your VPS server will be perceivable. The effect may not be evident momentarily, as Varnish will need some time to cache the website content that users browse, but shortly after you set it up, you will perceive its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to give less cash to get the very same performance you’d get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful web hosting solution and you buy one of the dedicated servers that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to boost the overall performance of your Internet sites at no extra cost as long as the server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-use GUI will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to reboot any instance with a click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for an immense collection of resource-demanding sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a gigantic load while your visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
