Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can boost the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Every time a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to a much-improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and accelerate your sites’ load speed regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you have chosen and you can activate and configure the platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse using the simple-to-use GUI offered by our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you have a lot of content on a certain site and you get lots of website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will offer you simple one-click controls for disabling or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with each Internet site and for viewing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator and improve the load speed of any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of system memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated plans. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal straight away. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if lots of data will be cached for a single site or whether the memory will be used by different websites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to cancel any instance, to see the system log file for it or to delete the cached files using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with each of our VPS plans when you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform is available by default and the memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends on the given plan that you’ve chosen, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to boost the work of multiple websites. It will take a little time for you to distinguish the effects, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors request, but soon after that you will notice the significantly reduced load on your VPS and the improved site loading speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for websites which would typically require a more expensive web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to accelerate the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no additional fee, but you’ll also have total control over it via Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface. It’ll take just one click to start or stop an instance or to delete the cached data associated with any website that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more advanced, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for caching purposes, so even if you run numerous sites on your server and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be perceivable. You’ll only have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers come with 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
