Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when 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 load substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a much faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the users will never see old info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting plan and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, indicates the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s user-friendly GUI will enable you to stop or to reboot any instance, to check in-depth logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open much faster, which means more pleased site visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated plans come with Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web app accelerator and optimize the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 MB of memory dedicated to Varnish at no additional cost and you will be able to enable an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you straight away. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if lots of content will be cached for a single website or if the memory will be utilized by multiple sites. Hepsia will permit you to restart or to discontinue any instance, to see the system log for it or to delete the cached content using one-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS servers, so in case you obtain a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to make the most of the data caching platform at no extra charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes based on the specific VPS package that you have selected during the subscription process, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to boost the work of several popular sites, so the better page load speeds and the less load on the virtual machine will be perceptible. The effect may not be observable straight away, since Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the site content that visitors browse, but shortly after you activate it, you will witness its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS server and to give less money to get the same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful website hosting solution and you buy any of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to boost the overall performance of your sites at no additional charge as long as the server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cached data or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge selection of large-scale Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with an enormous load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with several different dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
