Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches information for faster access. It is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a site visitor accesses a certain webpage, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the server handles this browser request and delivers the necessary content. If Varnish is enabled for a specific website, it will cache the pages on the very first request and in case the user visits a cached page once more, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The accelerated speed is an end result of the substantially faster response time that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the users will continue being served the very same content again and again, since any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its memory.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every 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’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to check elaborate system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open tremendously faster, meaning more pleased site visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers that we are offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your new semi-dedicated account has been created, since the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can use this workload distribution software as soon as your site has been launched. If you are in need of more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will significantly decrease the server load that your websites generate, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform without any effort from your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached content associated with any of your Internet sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS hosting plans, so if you get a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make use of the caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the very plan that you’ve chosen on the order page, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to enhance the performance of several different resource-intensive websites, so the better page browsing speeds and the reduced load on the VPS will be perceptible. The result may not be detectable instantly, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that users open, but soon after you enable it, you’ll observe its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS and to give less money to get the same performance you’d get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are ordered with the custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be enabled and administered without efforts via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can view an exhaustive log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached content associated with any site and much more. Soon after you activate Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a considerably faster site performance and a lowered load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host many sites on the dedicated machine.
