Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches information for quicker access. It’s sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor opens a certain page, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the server processes this browser request and delivers the necessary content. If Varnish is activated for a particular site, it will cache the pages on the very first visit and if the user opens a cached page for a second time, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The boosted load speed is an end result of the substantially faster response time that Varnish offers compared to any server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the users will keep being served the very same content over and over again, as any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud package and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s time and effort saving interface will allow you to delete or to restart any instance, to check exhaustive system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open much faster, which means more happy visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is offered as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in the account. In case you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same section will permit you to add more instances as well, in case you wish to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single traffic-intensive Internet site or run a number of websites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of Varnish in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached contents, to check a log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate the load speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you will also have total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface. It will take only one single click of the mouse to start or remove an instance or to clear the cache for any site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you are more proficient, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of virtual memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you run many sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their performance will be apparent. You will just need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the site visitors load on their end. The platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers include 3 charge-free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
