Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches data for faster response times. It is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a certain web page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server processes this request and sends back the requested data. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache its pages on the very first visit and in case the user visits a cached page again, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The boosted loading speed is an end result of the substantially faster response speed that Varnish offers as compared with any server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the same content over and over again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and optimize your websites’ load speed irrespective of the website hosting plan that you’ve chosen and you can activate and set up the data caching platform with several mouse clicks from the simple-to-use GUI offered by our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will employ the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you’ve got plenty of content on a particular site and you win lots of website visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you simple one-click buttons for shutting down or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for any website and for checking detailed system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web application accelerator and enhance the load speed of any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for Varnish at no additional charge and you can enable an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantaneously. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether plenty of data will be cached for a single site or whether the memory will be utilized by several Internet sites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to delete any instance, to see the system log for it or to delete the cached files using single-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can get a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use it.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want a powerful web hosting solution and you buy any of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company, you will be able to use Varnish to improve the work of your Internet sites at no additional fee as long as the server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use GUI will allow you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimal amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge collection of frequently visited Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with a massive system load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your machine will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
