Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches data for quicker access. It is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a website visitor opens a given web page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server handles this request and sends back the requested information. If Varnish is activated for a given website, it will cache its pages on the very first request and if the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The accelerated loading speed is a result of the much faster response speed that Varnish offers compared to any web server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the same content again and again, since any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform caches in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, shows the maximum amount of content that the platform can store at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving interface will permit you to deactivate or to restart any instance, to view elaborate logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open tremendously faster, which means more happy users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering will permit you to use Varnish once your 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 moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload balancing software once your site has been launched online. In case you need more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine in an instant. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The Varnish platform will significantly decrease the server load produced by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with ease from your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/discontinue 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 Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS web hosting packages when you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your websites is dependent on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end packages, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal solely for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to enhance the work of numerous Internet sites. It will take some time for you to detect the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors access, but soon thereafter you’ll notice the significantly less load and the accelerated Internet site load speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a lower-end VPS package for Internet sites that would typically need a more costly web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish content caching platform can be activated and managed with no effort from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can check an exhaustive system log, create or reboot an instance, delete the cached data for any website and much more. Shortly after you enable Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the web pages requested by the visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll witness a tremendously faster site performance and a reduced load on the server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you run a large number of Internet sites on the server.
