Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of faster response times. It’s occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a certain page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the server handles this browser request and sends back the requested data. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache the pages on the first request and if the user visits a cached page once again, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The accelerated speed is an end result of the substantially faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will continue seeing the same content over and over again, since any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, indicates the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to shut down or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load substantially faster, which means more satisfied site visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish platform is an essential part of the standard service set that you’ll acquire if you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your sites via our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need 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 Internet sites that can use this platform simultaneously. Since these two things are not bound to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single site. Varnish works best when you get a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with an easy means of rebooting any instance. Also, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with just a click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with each of our VPS server packages at no extra charge, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The sole condition is that the VPS server must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with just a couple of mouse clicks. Each VPS package comes with a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several resource-hungry websites. Shortly after you activate Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your site visitors access, so you will notice the much better Internet site load speeds and the reduced load on the virtual server in no time. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less pricey virtual machine, since you won’t need that many resources to ensure the proper operation of your websites even if you have resource-heavy sites with multiple visitors. Best results are accomplished if the Internet sites which use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated servers that we are offering, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the work of your Internet sites at no extra cost on the condition that the server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cached data or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of system memory that the caching platform can employ to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a vast collection of regularly visited Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a substantial system load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
