Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches information for faster response times. It is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a visitor accesses a particular page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the server processes this browser request and returns the necessary information. If Varnish is activated for a certain website, it will cache its pages at the very first visit and in case the user visits a cached page once again, the content will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The increased speed is an end result of the considerably faster response time that Varnish offers as compared to any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the site visitors will continue 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 saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and boost your sites’ load speed regardless of the shared web hosting package that you have picked and you can activate and set up the platform with a few mouse clicks from the easy-to-use graphical interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you will be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got plenty of content on a particular website and you win numerous site visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy 1-click buttons for cancelling or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with each site and for viewing exhaustive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is included in the basic service set that you’ll obtain when you decide to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your websites via our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this caching platform at the same time. Since these two features aren’t bound to each other, you can use a few sites with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single site. The Varnish caching platform performs best if you get a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you a simple way of rebooting any instance. Also, you’ll be able to delete the cached files with just one click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS web hosting, so if you order a server with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take full advantage of the caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes based on the very setup that you have picked on the order form, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to improve the work of several different heavy Internet sites, so the better site load speeds and the decreased load on the VPS will be perceptible. The effect may not be observable momentarily, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that users access, but soon after you enable it, you will feel its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to give less money to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you order one of the dedicated servers hosting offered by us, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to optimize the performance of your sites at no additional fee as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate GUI will permit you to monitor system processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with one single click. The minimum amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache Internet site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an enormous selection of resource-absorbing sites, so your server will be able to handle a tremendous load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
