Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a website 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 handled by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a much faster loading site, which means an improved visitor experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud website hosting packages. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting plans and you will get an exceptionally simple-to-use graphical interface, which will give you full control over the caching system. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can restart or disable any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular website. You can also view an elaborate system log file or erase the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your sites and to have lots of satisfied visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web accelerator tool and speed up any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you straight away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of content will be cached for one website or whether the memory will be used by different websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to deactivate any instance, to see the system log file for it or to clear the cached data using one-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP to the Internet sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS

You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS packages if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The content caching platform is offered by default and the system memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites is dependent on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to optimize the performance of multiple websites. It’ll take a little time for you to detect the effects, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors access, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the considerably reduced load on your virtual machine and the accelerated website load speed. Varnish will permit you to make use of a lower-end plan for Internet sites that would normally require a more costly web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish to enhance the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you will also exert total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface. It will take only one click of the mouse to start or delete an instance or to clear the cached content associated with any site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more proficient, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you host an immense number of websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be evident. You’ll simply need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the visitors load on their end. The platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers include three cost-free IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
