Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of faster access. It is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a browser. When a site visitor opens a specific page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server processes this browser request and delivers the required data. If Varnish is enabled for a given website, it will cache the pages at the very first visit and if the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the information will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The accelerated loading speed is a result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared to any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the visitors will keep seeing the exact same content again and again, because any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with several mouse clicks through your hosting Control Panel. The platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our hosting packages and you can choose how many sites will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they aren’t directly tied to each other, so you can decide if you want lots of memory for one large-sized website or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish platform if the websites use a dedicated IP. Using the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/restart/terminate an instance, delete the cached data individually for each site which uses Varnish or view an elaborate system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your brand new semi-dedicated account is active, as the data caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can use this workload distribution software once your site has been taken online. In case you’re in need of more system memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server momentarily. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will enormously decrease the load on the machine that your sites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without effort through the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached files for any of your sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Varnish with any of our virtual private server packages at no additional cost, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The one and only prerequisite is that the VPS server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a few clicks. Each package comes with a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you will have minimum several hundred MB, which is enough even for multiple traffic-consuming sites. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your website visitors access, so you will notice the considerably better web page loading times and the less load on the VPS very soon. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less high-priced Virtual Private Server, since you won’t need that many resources to sustain the uninterrupted operation of your sites even if you run traffic-intensive Internet sites with plenty of visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the sites that use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you need a powerful hosting solution and you obtain any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost on the condition that the server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will enable you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cache or to restart any instance with one single click. The smallest amount of memory that Varnish can employ to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a large number of resource-hungry sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a massive load while your website visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your server will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
