Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can accelerate the speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on the content itself. Every 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 when the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load substantially faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading page, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors will not end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux web hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared plans and you’ll get a truly simple-to-use GUI, which will give you full control over the data caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can restart or discontinue any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific Internet site. You can also check an elaborate log or delete the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimal performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have numerous happy site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to enable more instances too, if you want to use the Varnish platform with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-demanding site or use a number of Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one click, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents, to view a system log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is included by default with all Linux VPS hosting offered by our company as long as the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the performance of your websites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you have several sites, you’ll notice a serious decrease in the server load and a substantially better site loading speed. The platform will need to work for a while while the users navigate the site and once the content has been cached, you will distinguish the effects. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the exact same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your websites work much better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you order one of the Linux dedicated web hosting offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to boost the work of your Internet sites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cache or to restart any instance with one click. The smallest amount of system memory that the caching platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense collection of busy sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle an immense system load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
