Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches info for quicker response times. It is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a certain webpage, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the required data. If Varnish is enabled for a particular website, it will cache its pages on the very first request and in case the visitor opens a cached page once more, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The improved load speed is an end result of the substantially faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared to any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep seeing the very same content over and over again, since any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s full potential and increase the speed of your sites regardless of the website hosting package that you’ve picked and you can enable and configure the data caching platform with a few mouse clicks via the simple-to-work-with interface offered by our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use the Varnish caching platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got lots of content on a particular website and you attract numerous site visitors, more system memory will give you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy one-click controls for discontinuing or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with any site and for viewing in-depth logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your new account has been created, since the content caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software as soon as your website has been built. If you are in need of more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you’ll have more freedom. The platform will immensely lower the load on the server generated by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without efforts through the Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached files associated with any of your Internet sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

Varnish is included by default with each of the Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company given that the machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the performance of your sites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several different websites, you will notice an enormous reduction in the overall server load and a considerably faster webpage load speed. The platform will have to work for a while as the visitors browse the website and once the content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the effect. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive package will do the same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform better, but you’ll also spare some cash.
