Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can increase the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, since Varnish can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will not end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux web hosting package and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you’d like to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of data that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI will permit you to discontinue or to restart any instance, to see elaborate logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied site users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is offered as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same Upgrades section will allow you to create more instances as well, if you’d like to use the Varnish platform with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one single traffic-intensive Internet site or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform in case you use a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one single click, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents, to check a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Varnish with any of our virtual private server plans at no additional charge, since the platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only prerequisite is that the VPS must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with only a few mouse clicks. Each Virtual Private Server plan comes with a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is enough even for several resource-requiring sites. Shortly after you activate Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your site visitors request, so you will notice the much better web page loading speeds and the decreased load on your virtual machine very soon. The platform will allow you to use a less expensive server, as you will not need that many resources to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you’ve got resource-demanding Internet sites with multiple visitors. Maximum results are accomplished if the websites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you want a powerful hosting solution and you obtain one of the dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your sites at no additional fee on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with interface will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached content or to reboot any instance with a click. The smallest amount of memory that the platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge number of resource-heavy websites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a massive load while your site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
