Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches information for quicker access. It is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and its users. When a visitor opens a given webpage, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this request and delivers the requested info. If Varnish is activated for a website, it will cache the pages at the first visit and if the user accesses a cached page for a second time, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the web server. The improved loading speed is an end result of the much faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the users will keep seeing the 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 Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our web hosting. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you will get an amazingly simple-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can restart or discontinue any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a certain site. You can also check an elaborate system log or clear the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have plenty of pleased site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the account. If you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to enable more instances too, in case you would like to use the Varnish platform with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-absorbing website or use several different Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cached data, to view a log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish caching platform comes by default with each of the Linux VPS web hosting that we’re offering given that the machine is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can enhance the performance of your sites with just a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have several different Internet sites, you will notice an enormous reduction in the server load and a significantly better website loading speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a while while the visitors navigate the site and as soon as the content has been cached, you’ll observe the effects. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive VPS plan will do the exact same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your sites work much better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be activated and administered effortlessly through Hepsia’s time and effort saving GUI and, with no more than one click, you can view an elaborate system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached files associated with any Internet site and much more. Shortly after you configure the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will start caching the pages browsed by the site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will observe a significantly faster website performance in addition to a reduced load on your dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you run a large number of websites on the machine.
