Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Whenever 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 opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, since Varnish can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a much faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors won’t see old information.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our shared website hosting plans. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a rather simple-to-use GUI, which will grant you full control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or shut down any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a given Internet site. You can also view a comprehensive system log file or clear the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have plenty of happy site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your account. If you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will enable you to create more instances too, if you want to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-hungry site or run a number of websites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to delete the cached data, to view a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with each of the VPS hosting plans that we offer as long as the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your websites with just a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have several different Internet sites, you will notice an immense reduction in the overall server load and a significantly better site loading speed. The platform will have to work for a little while while the visitors navigate the pages and as soon as the website content has been cached, you’ll observe the effects. One of the pluses of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey Virtual Private Server plan will do the same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your websites work substantially better, but you will also save a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to improve the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you’ll also exert full control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI. It will take just one mouse click to start or cancel an instance or to clear the cached data for any website that’s using the Varnish platform and if you’re more practiced, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you host a large number of websites on your machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be apparent. You’ll simply have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
