Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for quicker response times. It’s occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a particular page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server handles this browser request and delivers the requested data. If Varnish is activated for a certain site, it will cache its pages on the first visit and if the visitor visits a cached page again, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The increased load speed is an end result of the much faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared with any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will continue seeing the same content over and over again, since any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages and you will get an amazingly intuitive interface, which will give you full control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or turn off any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific Internet site. You can also see a detailed system log or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you will be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have numerous satisfied site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is offered by default with all semi-dedicated servers offered by us and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same Upgrades section will allow you to add more instances too, if you want to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single traffic-hungry site or run several Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over the platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you’ll be able to clear the cached content, to see a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want a powerful hosting solution and you buy any of the dedicated servers that we’re offering, you can use Varnish to improve the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use GUI will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached files or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge collection of resource-absorbing Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with an enormous system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated server will include several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
