Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can accelerate the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Each 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 when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result is a much faster loading website, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages 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actual site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will not end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and optimize the speed of your sites irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you’ve picked and you can add and set up the platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse via the simple-to-use interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you’ve got a lot of content on a particular Internet site and you attract plenty of visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you simple 1-click controls for stopping or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for any Internet site and for viewing detailed system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all semi-dedicated services offered by us and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same section will permit you to enable more instances too, in case you wish to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two things can be added independently – you can cache the content of one resource-consuming site or run a number of websites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you use a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cache, to view a system log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Varnish with all our virtual private server plans at no extra fee, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The one and only requirement is that the Virtual Private Server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a couple of clicks. Each Virtual Private Server package features a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you’ll have minimum several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient enough even for multiple resource-requiring websites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your site visitors browse, so you’ll notice the much faster webpage loading times and the lowered load on the VPS very soon. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less costly Virtual Private Server, as you won’t require that many resources to guarantee the proper operation of your websites even if you own traffic-consuming Internet sites with multiple visitors. Best results are achieved if the Internet sites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to improve the speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no additional fee, but you will also exert total control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface. It’ll take only one single click of the mouse to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached data associated with any site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you are more knowledgeable, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of virtual memory for caching purposes, so even if you host a vast number of websites on your machine and they all use the platform, the improvement in their performance will be detectable. You will only need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors browse on their end. The platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers come with 3 cost-free IPs, you will have all that you need.
