Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading site, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors won’t see old content.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud hosting. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you’ll get an amazingly intuitive GUI, which will grant you full control over the caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can restart or deactivate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a certain website. You can also view a detailed log or delete the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the websites that 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 websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have a lot of satisfied site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is an essential part of the basic set of services that you’ll obtain if you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your Internet sites via our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this platform simultaneously. As these two features aren’t bound to each other, you can use a few Internet sites with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single website. Varnish performs best if you allocate a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you an easy way of restarting any instance. What’s more, you’ll be able to clear the cached data with just one single mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-managed VPS servers, so in case you order a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make full use of the content caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for caching purposes based on the very server configuration that you’ve chosen during the subscription process, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to optimize the overall performance of several resource-absorbing Internet sites, so the faster site load speeds and the decreased load will be noticeable. The result may not be detectable momentarily, as Varnish will require some time to cache the content that visitors access, but shortly after you activate it, you will observe its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server and to pay less cash to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want the most powerful website hosting solution and you purchase one of the dedicated servers that we’re offering, you will be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to enhance the work of your sites at no additional charge on the condition that the server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will enable you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached data or to reboot any instance with one single click. The smallest amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an immense selection of resource-hungry sites, so your server will be able to deal with a substantial system load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
