Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches information for quicker access. It is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a website visitor loads a specific webpage, its content is requested by the browser, and then the web server handles this request and returns the required content. If Varnish is activated for a specific site, it will cache the pages on the very first request and if the user visits a cached page again, the content will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The boosted speed is a result of the significantly faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the users 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 the Varnish platform caches in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your sites under a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with a couple of clicks of the mouse via your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is offered as an upgrade with all our shared web hosting packages and you can choose how many sites will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they aren’t tied directly to each other, so you can decide whether you need lots of memory for one large-sized website or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unleash the full potential of the Varnish caching platform in case the sites use a dedicated IP. With the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/restart/discontinue an instance, delete the cached contents individually for each site which uses the Varnish platform or check a detailed system log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator tool and boost the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 MB of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you can add an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you immediately. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if plenty of data will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be utilized by multiple websites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to discontinue any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to clear the cached files using single-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the websites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no additional fee, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with just a few clicks of the mouse. Each VPS package comes with a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll have minimum several hundred megabytes, which is quite sufficient even for several resource-heavy sites. Shortly after you enable Varnish, it will begin caching the content that your site visitors open, so you’ll notice the much faster webpage loading speeds and the lowered load on the VPS server in no time. The platform will allow you to use a less costly virtual server, since you will not require that many resources to ensure the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you have resource-hungry Internet sites with many visitors. Optimum results are accomplished if the websites that use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you order one of the Linux dedicated web hosting that we offer, you’ll be able to use the Varnish platform to boost the work of your Internet sites at no additional cost as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with GUI will permit you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with one click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense selection of large-sized sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your website visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with several different dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
