Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending 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 in case the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading site, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the users will not end up seeing outdated information.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud website hosting service and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s time and effort saving graphical interface will permit you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to view exhaustive logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open considerably faster, meaning more satisfied site visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services include Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web app accelerator and increase the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for Varnish at no additional cost and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal immediately. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if a lot of data will be cached for one site or if the available memory will be utilized by multiple sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to reboot or to cancel any instance, to see the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached data using single-click controls. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use Varnish with all our virtual private server packages at no extra fee, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only condition is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each Virtual Private Server plan offers a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is enough even for several resource-consuming sites. Soon after you enable Varnish, it’ll start caching the content that your website visitors access, so you will notice the substantially faster website load times and the reduced load on the VPS server very soon. Varnish will allow you to use a less expensive VPS, as you will not require that many resources to sustain the correct operation of your websites even if you manage large Internet sites with lots of visitors. Best results are achieved if the Internet sites which use Varnish use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated web hosting which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be activated and administered without efforts through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view a comprehensive system log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached data for any site and much, much more. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform for a given domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages opened by your visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will perceive a substantially faster site performance as well as a lowered load. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run a lot of sites on the server.
