Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches information for the sake of faster access. It’s sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a browser. When a website visitor loads a specific page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server processes this browser request and sends back the necessary data. If Varnish is activated for a given website, it will cache its pages at the first request and in case the visitor accesses a cached page again, the data will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The boosted speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared with any server software. Of course, this does not mean that the visitors will keep being served the very same content over and over again, since any modification on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s user-friendly interface will enable you to deactivate or to reboot any instance, to view comprehensive logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load much faster, which means more satisfied site visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the website accelerator tool and optimize the load speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you can create an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if lots of data will be cached for a single site or if the memory will be used by different websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to deactivate any instance, to see the system log for it or to delete the cached data using one-click controls. To get the most out of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with any of our VPS server packages at no additional fee, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The only condition is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each VPS package offers a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you’ll have minimum several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-hungry websites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your site visitors open, so you will notice the substantially better site load speeds and the decreased load on the VPS very soon. The caching platform will allow you to use a less high-priced virtual server, since you won’t require that much power to warrant the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you run heavy-traffic sites with numerous visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the websites that use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are ordered with the custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated server. The Varnish platform can be enabled and administered effortlessly via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can browse an elaborate system log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached data associated with any site and much more. Soon after you activate Varnish for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the web pages opened by your website visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll observe a considerably faster website performance plus a decreased load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host many Internet sites on the dedicated server.
