Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches content for quicker access. It is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and a browser. When a website visitor accesses a particular web page, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the web server handles this browser request and delivers the necessary content. If Varnish is enabled for a certain website, it will cache its pages at the first request and if the user visits a cached page again, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the web server. The boosted loading speed is a result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers as compared to any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will continue being served the same content again and again, because any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its memory.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each shared plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use graphical interface will permit you to deactivate or to reboot any instance, to check comprehensive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open substantially faster, which means more happy site visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans offered by us will allow you to use Varnish once your new semi-dedicated account has been created, since the platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload distribution software once your site has been published online. If you need more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server in a flash. 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 system memory that you use, which means that you will have more flexibility. The caching platform will enormously lower the load on the semi-dedicated machine produced by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with ease through the Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached files for any of your sites or to check system log files.
