Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of faster response times. It is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor loads a certain webpage, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the requested information. If Varnish is activated for a given site, it will cache the pages on the very first visit and in case the user accesses a cached page for a second time, the info will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The boosted load speed is a result of the significantly faster response time that Varnish offers as compared to any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep being served the same content over and over again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and boost your sites’ loading speed regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can enable and set up the platform with several clicks of the mouse using the user-friendly graphical interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you have a lot of content on a specific site and you win numerous website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will provide you with easy one-click buttons for shutting down or restarting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any website and for viewing in-depth system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages include Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the website accelerator and speed up any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory particularly for Varnish at no additional fee and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal right away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of data will be cached for a single website or whether the available memory will be used by different websites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to see the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached content using one-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites which will employ it.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering, you can use Varnish to improve the overall performance of your websites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with GUI will permit you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one single click. The smallest amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge number of resource-demanding sites, so your server will be able to handle an enormous load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
