Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the loading speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Every time a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open much faster, as Varnish can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading page, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the website visitors won’t end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to add Varnish with a couple of mouse clicks via your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our hosting plans and you can choose the number of the sites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be available for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they aren’t directly linked to each other, so you can decide whether you want a lot of memory for one single large site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can make use of the full potential of the Varnish caching platform if the websites use a dedicated IP. Using the Control Panel, you can swiftly start/restart/cancel an instance, delete the cached content individually for each website which employs Varnish or view a detailed system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated services offered by us will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your brand-new account has been set up, since the data caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been published to the web. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will significantly decrease the server load produced by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without effort from your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/stop any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache for any of your websites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS hosting services if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your website content depends upon the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal exclusively for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to improve the performance of multiple sites. It’ll take some time for you to distinguish the results, since Varnish caches the content that visitors request, but after that you will notice the considerably reduced load on the VPS and the enhanced site loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful package for sites that would usually require a more pricey hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to optimize the load speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you will also exert total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use interface. It will take only one mouse click to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached data associated with any site that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you are more experienced, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of virtual memory for content caching purposes, so even if you host a vast number of Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their performance will be noticeable. You will only need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the website visitors access on their end. The platform performs best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
