Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker access. It’s sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a website visitor accesses a particular web page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and delivers the required information. If Varnish is activated for a particular website, it will cache the pages on the very first visit and if the user accesses a cached page for a second time, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The improved loading speed is a result of the substantially faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared with any server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will continue seeing the very same content over and over again, since any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s full potential and enhance your sites’ load speed irrespective of the website hosting package that you’ve selected and you can add and configure the platform with a couple of clicks using the intuitive graphical interface offered by our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you have plenty of content on a specific website and you receive a lot of website visitors, more system memory will give you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you simple 1-click buttons for discontinuing or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with any site and for seeing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you need more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will enable you to enable more instances as well, in case you’d like to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one single resource-absorbing site or run a number of websites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents, to see a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with any of our VPS server plans at no extra cost, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The only prerequisite is that the Virtual Private Server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Each package comes with a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is quite sufficient even for multiple resource-demanding Internet sites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your website visitors browse, so you will notice the significantly faster Internet site load speeds and the decreased load on the VPS server in no time. The caching platform will allow you to use a less costly virtual machine, as you won’t need that much power to sustain the correct operation of your websites even if you own resource-intensive sites with multiple visitors. Best results are accomplished if the websites that use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a more powerful website hosting solution and you get any of the dedicated servers offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional fee on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use interface will allow you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cached files or to restart any instance with one click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a vast selection of frequently visited websites, so your server will be able to cope with a massive load while your website visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
