Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches data for the sake of faster response times. It is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a website visitor accesses a specific page, its content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the required data. If Varnish is activated for a certain site, it will cache the pages on the very first request and in case the visitor opens a cached page once more, the content will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the server. The accelerated load speed is a result of the considerably faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared with any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will continue being served the same content over and over again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s potential and boost the speed of your sites regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you have chosen and you can activate and configure the platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the easy-to-work-with GUI offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use the Varnish caching platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you have a lot of content on a certain site and you attract numerous site visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will offer you simple one-click buttons for deleting or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache for each site and for seeing exhaustive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator tool and improve the speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no extra cost and you can activate an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal immediately. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if plenty of content will be cached for one site or if the memory will be used by different sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to remove any instance, to view the system log for it or to delete the cached data using 1-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish platform is included by default with each of the VPS hosting services offered by our company given that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your websites with only a few mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run several websites, you’ll notice an immense reduction in the server load and a considerably faster site loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while while the users navigate the site and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will notice the effect. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey plan will accomplish the exact same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work much better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to accelerate the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no extra fee, but you will also exert total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI. It’ll take only one single mouse click to start or cancel an instance or to clear the cached content for any website that is using Varnish and in case you’re more tech-savvy, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of virtual memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you host multiple websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their overall performance will be perceivable. You’ll only need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors browse on their end. The platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-charge IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
