Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of faster access. It’s occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a browser. When a site visitor opens a given page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server processes this request and returns the required data. If Varnish is enabled for a certain website, it will cache the pages at the very first request and in case the user accesses a cached page once more, the information will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the server. The increased speed is an end result of the significantly faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the website visitors will continue seeing the exact same content again and again, because any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its memory.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared website hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you would like to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the total amount of content that the platform can store at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with GUI will enable you to cancel or to restart any instance, to check elaborate logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open tremendously faster, which means more happy website visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the accelerator and enhance the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you can activate an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you right away. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether lots of data will be cached for a single website or if the available memory will be used by several Internet sites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to remove any instance, to check the system log for it or to delete the cached files using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can get a dedicated IP address for the sites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS, so if you acquire a server with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to take advantage of the content caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the specific plan that you’ve chosen at signup, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to optimize the overall performance of a handful of large sites, so the faster site load speeds and the reduced load on your server will be perceptible. The effect may not be evident right away, as Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the site content that people open, but soon after you set it up, you’ll perceive its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end server and to give less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will get Varnish at no additional fee and you’ll have full control over it through an exceptionally easy-to-navigate interface – you will be able to start, to terminate or to reboot an instance, to browse an elaborate log, to delete the cached files associated with any website and much, much more. The Varnish platform will have several gigabytes of system memory at its disposal, so even if you host resource-absorbing websites with a huge number of visitors, you’ll notice the tremendously faster site load times and the lowered load. This will happen soon after you start using Varnish, since it will require some time to cache the pages that users access. You can make the most of the platform’s capability in case the sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that your server includes a few IPs by default, you will not need to pay anything on top of the monthly charge for the machine itself.
