Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Each 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 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 considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the content that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors won’t see old content.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting plan and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of content that the platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface will allow you to stop or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load tremendously faster, which means more satisfied users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which comes by default with all semi-dedicated plans that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will allow you to add more instances as well, if you want to use the Varnish platform with multiple sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-requiring site or run several different websites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you will be able to delete the cached data, to check a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS servers, so if you order a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the caching platform at no additional cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the very configuration that you’ve selected during the order process, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to improve the work of a handful of large-scale sites, so the faster website browsing speeds and the less load will be perceivable. The effect may not be visible straight away, as the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the site content that users browse, but soon after you activate it, you will feel its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server and to pay less money to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to increase the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no extra fee, but you will also have full control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It’ll take only one click to start or terminate an instance or to clear the cache for any website that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more experienced, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run numerous sites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their performance will be observable. You’ll simply need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever content the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers come with 3 free-of-charge IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
