Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of quicker access. It’s occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor loads a given page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server handles this request and delivers the requested information. If Varnish is enabled for a particular website, it will cache the pages at the first request and if the visitor accesses a cached page once again, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The boosted speed is an end result of the much faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the users will continue being served the very same content again and 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

In case you host your Internet sites under a website hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Control Panel. The caching platform is offered as an upgrade with all our hosting packages and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the total storage space that will be available for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they aren’t directly linked to each other, so you can decide if you want lots of memory for one large-scale website or less memory for several smaller ones. You can make use of the full potential of Varnish if the websites use a dedicated IP address. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/cancel an instance, clear the cached data individually for each website which uses the Varnish platform or see a detailed log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated packages offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated account has been activated, as the platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this load distribution software as soon as your website has been taken online. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated 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 directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more versatility. The platform will noticeably reduce the load on the semi-dedicated server that your websites produce, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without efforts through your Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache associated with any of your websites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our VPS hosting in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes by default and the memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the performance of numerous websites. It’ll take a little time for you to observe the results, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors access, but shortly after that you will notice the significantly reduced load on the VPS and the accelerated website loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server plan for Internet sites which would typically require a more expensive hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you get any of the dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to optimize the overall performance of your websites at no extra fee as long as the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with interface will permit you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached contents or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a vast number of traffic-heavy Internet sites, so your server will be able to deal with an enormous system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your machine will come with several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
