Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches content for the sake of quicker access. It is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it works between a web server and its users. When a visitor loads a given page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server processes this request and delivers the requested content. If Varnish is activated for a certain site, it will cache the pages on the very first request and in case the user visits a cached page again, the information will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the server. The accelerated loading speed is a result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared with any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the visitors will keep seeing the same content over and over again, as any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux web hosting service and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the platform can store at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will allow you to delete or to restart any instance, to check detailed system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load significantly faster, meaning more pleased users and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting service that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish 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 your semi-dedicated server account. In case 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 enable more instances as well, if you’d like to use Varnish with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one traffic-consuming Internet site or run several different sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to clear the cached contents, to view a system log or to restart an instance.

The sole prerequisite is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each plan includes a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient enough even for several resource-intensive websites. Shortly after you set up Varnish, it will begin caching the content that your site visitors access, so you’ll notice the substantially faster Internet site loading speeds and the reduced load on the VPS server in no time. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less pricey VPS server, since you won’t require that many resources to guarantee the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you have high-demand websites with lots of visitors.
