Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches content for faster response times. It is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a browser. When a site visitor accesses a certain page, its content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the required info. If Varnish is activated for a given site, it will cache the pages at the very first visit and in case the user accesses a cached page once more, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The increased load speed is an end result of the significantly faster response speed that Varnish offers compared with any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will keep being served the very same content over and over again, as any modification on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish caches in its memory.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is offered as standard with all semi-dedicated plans offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will enable you to add more instances as well, in case you want to use the Varnish caching platform with more sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-absorbing Internet site or run a number of sites with the default memory. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform if you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you’ll be able to clear the cached data, to see a system log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our VPS web hosting plans when you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites depends on the specific package that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end packages, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the overall performance of multiple websites. It will take a little time for you to distinguish the results, as Varnish caches the content that visitors browse, but after that you’ll notice the considerably decreased load on the server and the accelerated website browsing speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a lower-end VPS plan for Internet sites that would usually require a more costly web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need a more powerful website hosting solution and you obtain any of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by us, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the work of your sites at no extra fee as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate graphical interface will permit you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with a click. The minimum amount of system memory that Varnish can use to cache Internet site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large selection of resource-absorbing websites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a substantial system load while your site visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. Since your server will come with several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
