Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load much faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a much faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will not end up seeing old data.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared website hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface will permit you to stop or to restart any instance, to view comprehensive logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, which means more satisfied site users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you need more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will enable you to add more instances as well, in case you’d like to use the Varnish platform with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one traffic-heavy site or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click, you will be able to clear the cached content, to view a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS

You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our Linux VPS if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is offered by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites is dependent upon the given VPS plan that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is enough to improve the work of multiple Internet sites. It’ll take some time for you to see the effects, since Varnish caches the content that visitors request, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the significantly decreased load on your VPS server and the improved website browsing speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for sites that would usually require a more pricey web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to increase the loading speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you will also have full control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI. It’ll take just one single click of the mouse to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cached data for any site that is using Varnish and if you’re more sophisticated, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for caching purposes, so even in case you run multiple sites on your server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be observable. You will just have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers come with 3 charge-free IPs, you will have everything you need.
