Varnish is a web app 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 site visitor accesses a specific web page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server handles this request and returns the requested information. If Varnish is enabled for a specific site, it will cache the pages on the first request and in case the visitor accesses a cached page once again, the data will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The boosted loading speed is a result of the significantly faster response time that Varnish offers as compared to any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep being served the same content over and over again, since any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, refers to the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface will permit you to delete or to reboot any instance, to see comprehensive system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied site users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services come with Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the accelerator and increase the speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no extra cost and you can add an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal immediately. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of content will be cached for one website or whether the available memory will be utilized by different sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to cancel any instance, to see the system log for it or to clear the cached content using 1-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with all our virtual private server plans at no extra cost, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The only condition is that the virtual machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each VPS plan comes with a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for multiple resource-hungry websites. Soon after you activate Varnish, it’ll start caching the content that your site visitors request, so you will notice the substantially better website load speeds and the reduced server load in no time. The platform will allow you to use a less high-priced virtual server, since you won’t require that much power to sustain the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you’ve got traffic-consuming sites with many visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the sites that use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you order any of the dedicated web hosting offered by us, you can use the Varnish caching platform to boost the work of your websites at no additional fee as long as the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use GUI will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cache or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The smallest amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache Internet site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense collection of large-size sites, so your server will be able to handle a huge load while your visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will include several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
