Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of quicker access. It’s sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and its users. When a website visitor loads a particular page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server handles this request and sends back the requested information. If Varnish is activated for a certain website, it will cache the pages at the very first request and in case the user accesses a cached page again, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the web server. The boosted speed is an end result of the much faster response time that Varnish offers compared to any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the visitors will keep seeing the very same content again and again, since any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and improve your websites’ speed irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can add and set up the platform with a few clicks of the mouse using the simple-to-work-with GUI offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will employ the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got a lot of content on a given site and you get lots of site visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you easy 1-click buttons for switching off or restarting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any site and for checking elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web accelerator and optimize the load speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you will be able to enable an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal straight away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether plenty of content will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be used by several websites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to disable any instance, to check the system log file for it or to delete the cached data using single-click controls. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform is included by default with all VPS servers that we offer as long as the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the work of your sites with just a few clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have several Internet sites, you’ll notice an enormous reduction in the overall server load and a tremendously better page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a little while while the users navigate the website and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will notice the effects. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly VPS plan will do the same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites perform substantially better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful hosting solution and you obtain one of the dedicated servers offered by us, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to improve the overall performance of your websites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cached contents or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache Internet site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast selection of busy websites, so your server will be able to cope with a colossal system load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will include several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
