Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches data for quicker response times. It is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor accesses a given webpage, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server handles this request and delivers the needed content. If Varnish is enabled for a given website, it will cache its pages at the first visit and if the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the information will be delivered by the caching platform and not by the web server. The accelerated loading speed is a result of the significantly faster response speed that Varnish offers compared to any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will continue being served the exact same content over and over again, since any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, shows the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface will enable you to stop or to restart any instance, to check detailed logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, meaning more pleased site visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is offered as standard with all semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in the account. In case you need more, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same Upgrades section will allow you to add more instances too, if you want to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single traffic-consuming website or run several websites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you have a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you’ll be able to clear the cached files, to view a system log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want the most powerful hosting solution and you purchase one of the dedicated servers that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to improve the performance of your Internet sites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will permit you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cache or to reboot any instance with one click. The minimum amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large collection of popular websites, so your server will be able to deal with an enormous load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your machine will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
