Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches data for the sake of faster response times. It’s occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor loads a certain page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the needed content. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache the pages on the first visit and in case the user accesses a cached page once again, the content will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the server. The improved speed is an end result of the considerably faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will keep being served the very same content again and again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and improve your sites’ loading speed irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you’ve picked and you can add and set up the data caching platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the simple-to-use interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to select two separate things – how many websites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got lots of content on a particular website and you gain many visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will offer you simple one-click buttons for stopping or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache for any website and for viewing exhaustive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we’re offering will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated account has been activated, as the caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can use this workload distribution software once your site has been published to the web. If you are in need of more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more flexibility. The platform will considerably reduce the load on the semi-dedicated server that your sites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with no effort from the Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached data associated with any of your Internet sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our Linux VPS web hosting packages when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the given plan that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal exclusively for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to optimize the work of numerous websites. It will take some time for you to notice the effects, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors browse, but soon thereafter you will notice the considerably reduced load on the virtual server and the enhanced site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful plan for sites that would typically need a more pricey web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish content caching platform can be configured and managed without efforts through Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface and, with no more than a click, you can view an in-depth system log, create or restart an instance, clear the cached data associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you enable Varnish for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will observe a substantially better website performance and a lowered load on the server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host many Internet sites on your dedicated machine.
