Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of faster response times. It is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a website visitor loads a certain web page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server handles this browser request and delivers the necessary info. If Varnish is activated for a given website, it will cache the pages on the very first request and in case the user opens a cached page once more, the content will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The accelerated loading speed is an end result of the much faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will keep being served the exact same content over and over again, since any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its memory.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each web hosting plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular moment. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI will enable you to cancel or to restart any instance, to check detailed system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load significantly faster, which means more happy users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish caching platform is an essential part of the standard set of services that you’ll obtain if you choose to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your sites through our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the sites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two features aren’t linked to each other, you can use several sites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish platform works best when you get a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you an easy way of restarting any instance. Also, you’ll be able to delete the cached files with just one click of the mouse.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want the most powerful hosting solution and you buy any of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by us, you can use the Varnish platform to enhance the performance of your websites at no additional charge on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its intuitive interface will allow you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The minimal amount of system memory that the platform can use to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an enormous selection of resource-requiring sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with an enormous system load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
