Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches data for quicker response times. It’s occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a site visitor accesses a specific webpage, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server handles this request and sends back the requested info. If Varnish is activated for a particular website, it will cache its pages on the first request and if the user accesses a cached page again, the data will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The improved load speed is an end result of the much 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 very same content again and again, as any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can unlock Varnish’s potential and boost your sites’ speed regardless of the website hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can add and set up the data caching platform with several clicks of the mouse from the simple-to-work-with graphical interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will employ the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you have lots of content on a particular site and you gain numerous website visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will provide you with easy one-click buttons for terminating or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with each website and for checking exhaustive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the website accelerator tool and enhance the speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 MB of system memory exclusively for Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantly. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if plenty of content will be cached for a single site or if the available memory will be used by different sites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to deactivate any instance, to see the system log file for it or to clear the cached files using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no extra fee, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The sole precondition is that the VPS must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a few mouse clicks. Each VPS plan comes with a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get at least several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for several resource-demanding Internet sites. Soon after you enable Varnish, it will start caching the content that your site visitors access, so you’ll notice the considerably faster web page loading times and the decreased server load in no time. Varnish will allow you to use a less costly virtual server, as you will not require that many resources to warrant the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you own resource-hungry websites with lots of visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the websites which use the Varnish platform use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you acquire any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to improve the performance of your sites at no additional cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate interface will permit you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached data or to restart any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a large collection of resource-requiring Internet sites, so your server will be able to handle a massive system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
