Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of faster response times. It’s occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor loads a certain page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the requested information. If Varnish is activated for a specific website, it will cache its pages on the first request and in case the visitor opens a cached page once more, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The increased load speed is an end result of the much faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will continue seeing the very same content again and again, because any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface will permit you to remove or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open significantly faster, meaning more satisfied users and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering will allow you to employ Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been activated, as the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can use this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been published to the web. If you are in need of more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you will enjoy more flexibility. The Varnish platform will considerably reduce the load on the machine that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without effort from your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content for any of your Internet sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is included by default with all Linux VPS hosting offered by our company as long as the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the overall performance of your sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more 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 manage a number of websites, you’ll notice a significant decrease in the overall server load and a much faster web page load speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a while as the users browse the web pages and as soon as the content has been cached, you will notice the effects. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less high-priced plan will accomplish the same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites work significantly better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll obtain the Varnish content caching platform at no additional charge and you’ll exert complete control over it through a quite easy-to-use graphical interface – you’ll be able to start, to stop or to restart an instance, to browse a comprehensive system log, to delete the cached content associated with any site and much, much more. The Varnish caching platform will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you own traffic-consuming Internet sites with a vast number of visitors, you’ll notice the considerably better site loading speeds and the lowered server load. This will happen soon after you begin using the Varnish platform, since it will need some time to cache the website content that visitors browse. You can get the most out of the platform’s potential if the sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that your server comes with several IPs by default, you won’t have to pay anything on top of your monthly charge for the server itself.
