Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can increase the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Whenever 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 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 platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated info.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and optimize the speed of your websites regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you’ve selected and you can activate and configure the platform with several clicks of the mouse through the easy-to-use graphical interface offered by our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you have a lot of content on a certain website and you gain lots of website visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will provide you with simple one-click controls for deactivating or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for each site and for viewing comprehensive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you need more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to create more instances as well, if you would like to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-requiring website or use several sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to clear the cache, to check a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS web hosting packages, so if you get a server with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the content caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the specific package that you have chosen at signup, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to enhance the work of a number of traffic-intensive websites, so the better website load speeds and the less load on your virtual server will be perceivable. The effect may not be distinguishable immediately, since the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the website content that users open, but soon after you enable it, you will perceive its full capacity. This platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS and to pay less cash to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use Varnish to accelerate any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you’ll also exert total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface. It’ll take just one single mouse click to start or shut down an instance or to delete the cached content for any Internet site that’s using Varnish and in case you are more trained, you can also check the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you run a huge number of websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their performance will be evident. You will only need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the site visitors access on their end. The platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that our servers include 3 charge-free IPs, you will have all that you need.
