Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker access. It’s sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and its users. When a website visitor opens a certain web page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this request and sends back the needed content. If Varnish is enabled for a site, it will cache its pages at the very first request and in case the user opens a cached page for a second time, the data will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The accelerated loading speed is a result of the substantially faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep being served the very same content over and over again, as any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can use Varnish’s potential and optimize the speed of your sites irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you have picked and you can add and configure the platform with several mouse clicks using the simple-to-use GUI offered by our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got lots of content on a certain website and you receive numerous website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you easy one-click buttons for shutting down or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache for each site and for viewing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been opened, as the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load distribution software as soon as your site has been published on the Internet. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The caching platform will enormously lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine caused by your sites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish effortlessly via your Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached files for any of your Internet sites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform comes by default with all VPS hosting plans that we are offering on the condition that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own a number of sites, you’ll notice a significant decrease in the server load and a substantially better web page load speed. The platform will have to work for a little while as the users navigate the web pages and as soon as the content has been cached, you will notice the effects. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly plan will do the same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your sites work better, but you’ll also save some cash.

Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached data or to reboot any instance with one single click.

As your machine will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
