Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches data for quicker response times. It is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a certain webpage, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server handles this request and delivers the needed data. If Varnish is activated for a particular site, it will cache its pages at the very first visit and in case the visitor opens a cached page once again, the info will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The increased loading speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will continue seeing the very same content over and over again, since any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud packages. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you will get a truly simple-to-use GUI, which will grant you complete control over the data caching system. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or stop any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a particular Internet site. You can also view an in-depth system log file or delete the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have a lot of gratified site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish platform is included in the standard service set that you’ll get in case you decide to host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your websites via our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two things aren’t tied to each other, you can use several Internet sites with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single website. Varnish performs best when you use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you an easy means of restarting any instance. Furthermore, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with just one click.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS web hosting packages if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites depends upon the given package that you have picked, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to improve the performance of numerous Internet sites. It will take some time for you to notice the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors request, but soon thereafter you will notice the substantially lowered load on the virtual server and the enhanced website browsing speed. Varnish will permit you to use a lower-end package for sites which would normally require a more expensive web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be activated and managed effortlessly via Hepsia’s time and effort saving graphical interface and, with no more than one click, you can view an in-depth system log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached data associated with any site and much more. Soon after you activate Varnish for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages accessed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you’ll perceive a significantly faster site performance plus a reduced load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you run a huge number of Internet sites on the server.
