Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can boost the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. 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 if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a much faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users won’t see outdated information.

Varnish in Web Hosting

You can use Varnish’s potential and improve your websites’ load speed irrespective of the web hosting package that you have chosen and you can enable and set up the data caching platform with several clicks of the mouse via the easy-to-work-with graphical interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got lots of content on a specific site and you get numerous site visitors, more memory will give you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will provide you with simple one-click buttons for terminating or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache for any website and for seeing exhaustive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated service come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the accelerator and boost the speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks via 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 through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal straight away. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of content will be cached for one website or if the available memory will be used by several websites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to shut down any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached content using 1-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS service in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal solely for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to optimize the performance of numerous Internet sites. It will take a little time for you to observe the results, since Varnish caches the content that visitors request, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the significantly less load on the Virtual Private Server and the accelerated site load speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a less powerful VPS package for websites that would normally require a more pricey hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish to accelerate the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional fee, but you will also have full control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface. It’ll take only one single click of the mouse to start or disable an instance or to delete the cache associated with any Internet site that’s using Varnish and if you are more experienced, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you run an immense number of sites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be apparent. You’ll just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our servers include three charge-free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
