Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches info for faster response times. It’s sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a website visitor accesses a certain web page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and sends back the requested information. If Varnish is enabled for a particular site, it will cache the pages on the very first visit and if the visitor accesses a cached page for a second time, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the web server. The increased loading speed is an end result of the significantly faster response time that the Varnish platform offers compared to any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the website visitors will keep seeing the exact same content again and again, because any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by us will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your new account has been activated, as the platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load balancing software once your site has been built. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine in an instant. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more versatility. The Varnish platform will considerably lower the load produced by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform without efforts through the Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached files associated with any of your sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS service in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform is offered by default and the system memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends upon the specific Virtual Private Server package that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to improve the work of numerous sites. It’ll take a little time for you to detect the results, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors access, but soon thereafter you will notice the significantly less load on the virtual machine and the accelerated Internet site loading speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server plan for websites that would typically require a more expensive web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need the most powerful website hosting solution and you purchase any of the Linux dedicated service that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to improve the work of your websites at no additional fee as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate interface will enable you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cached data or to reboot any instance with one click. The minimum amount of memory that the platform can employ to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous collection of repeatedly visited Internet sites, so your server will be able to handle an immense load while your site visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. Since your machine will include several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
