Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of quicker access. It’s sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a visitor accesses a particular page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this request and sends back the required data. If Varnish is enabled for a given site, it will cache its pages at the first visit and if the user visits a cached page again, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The increased loading speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that Varnish offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep being served the very same content again and again, as any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our shared web hosting services. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting plans and you will get a quite user-friendly GUI, which will grant you complete control over the caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can restart or terminate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific website. You can also view a comprehensive log or clear the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have lots of happy users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included in the default service set that you’ll receive when you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your sites via our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this platform at the same time. Since these two things aren’t tied to each other, you can use a few instances with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single Internet site. The Varnish caching platform performs best when you use a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you a simple means of restarting any instance. Also, you will be able to clear the cached files with only one click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with all VPS hosting services that we’re offering on the condition that the machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the work of your sites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you own several sites, you’ll notice an enormous reduction in the server load and a much faster webpage load speed. The platform will have to work for a little while as the visitors navigate the website and once the content has been cached, you’ll observe the effect. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the exact same job as a more costly one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites work substantially better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you purchase any of the dedicated web hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites at no extra charge as long as the server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use interface will allow you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached data or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for an enormous collection of heavy websites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
