Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can increase the loading speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Anytime 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 loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open much faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The result is a considerably faster loading page, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the data that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will not see old content.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI will allow you to deactivate or to restart any instance, to see in-depth logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one click. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open much faster, which means more pleased visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us will allow you to employ Varnish once your brand new account has been opened, as the content caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload balancing software once your website has been published to the web. In case you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine in an instant. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ 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 freedom. The Varnish caching platform will substantially reduce the server load that your sites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish with no effort through the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/remove any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content for any of your Internet sites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our VPS web hosting packages when you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform is available by default and the memory that it will be able to use to cache your site content depends on the specific VPS package that you have picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the work of multiple Internet sites. It will take some time for you to detect the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors access, but soon after that you’ll notice the substantially lowered load on the virtual machine and the increased site loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for websites which would normally require a more high-priced hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to enhance the speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you will also exert total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI. It will take only one single mouse click to start or stop an instance or to clear the cached content for any Internet site that is using Varnish and in case you’re more sophisticated, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you host plenty of sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be observable. You will only have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors browse on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but since our dedicated servers include three cost-free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
