Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches information for faster access. It is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a browser. When a visitor opens a particular webpage, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server handles this browser request and delivers the required data. If Varnish is activated for a certain website, it will cache the pages at the first request and in case the visitor opens a cached page again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The increased speed is an end result of the considerably faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will keep being served the very same content over and over again, because any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the maximum amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to delete or to reboot any instance, to view detailed system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load considerably faster, which means more satisfied website users and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we are offering will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new semi-dedicated account has been set up, since the platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software as soon as you launch your website. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server straight away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more flexibility. The caching platform will considerably decrease the load generated by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish with no effort via the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached files for any of your sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS web hosting plans, so in case you acquire a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to use the content caching platform at no additional charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the very Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen during the signup procedure, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to optimize the performance of a handful of resource-absorbing sites, so the better web page loading speeds and the less load on the VPS server will be perceptible. The effect may not be obvious immediately, as Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the site content that people access, but shortly after you enable it, you’ll observe its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to give less money to get the same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to improve the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no additional fee, but you will also have full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI. It will take only one click of the mouse to start or discontinue an instance or to delete the cached content for any Internet site that is using Varnish and if you are more competent, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run a lot of Internet sites on your server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be obvious. You’ll just need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors browse on their end. The platform performs best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers come with three cost-free IPs, you will have all that you need.
