Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The result is a much faster loading website, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the users won’t end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud website hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface will permit you to stop or to restart any instance, to check elaborate logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, meaning more happy website visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services come with Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web application accelerator and enhance the loading speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of content will be cached for a single site or if the available memory will be used by multiple sites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to remove any instance, to check the system log file for it or to clear the cached data using 1-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS web hosting services when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is offered by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your websites is dependent upon the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to enhance the work of multiple Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to observe the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors request, but after that you will notice the substantially reduced load on the VPS and the increased Internet site loading speed. Varnish will permit you to make use of a less powerful plan for sites which would usually need a more pricey hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll get the Varnish data caching platform at no extra cost and you’ll exert total control over it via a quite easy-to-navigate graphical interface – you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot an instance, to check a detailed system log, to delete the cached content for any Internet site and much more. Varnish will have several GB of virtual memory at its disposal, so even if you have frequently visited websites with a vast number of visitors, you will notice the tremendously better web page loading times and the less load on the dedicated machine. This will happen soon after you begin using Varnish, since it will need some time to cache the pages that people open. You can make the most of the platform’s capability in case the sites that are using it also use a dedicated IP, but since your dedicated server comes with a few IPs by default, you won’t have to pay anything on top of your monthly fee for the server itself.
