Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Every 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 in case the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, as Varnish can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result is a substantially faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing outdated content.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our Linux website hosting plans. You can add it to your web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting plans and you will get an exceptionally simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you full control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or terminate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular site. You can also view a detailed log or clear the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have plenty of pleased users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web app accelerator tool and enhance the load speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether a lot of data will be cached for one website or if the memory will be utilized by several websites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to discontinue any instance, to check the system log associated with it or to clear the cached files using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish content caching platform comes by default with each of the VPS hosting plans that we are offering given that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the performance of your sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several different websites, you’ll notice a serious decrease in the server load and a tremendously faster web page load speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while as the users navigate the pages and once the content has been cached, you will perceive the effects. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive Virtual Private Server plan will do the same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites work much better, but you’ll also spare some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish to improve the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you will also exert full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface. It’ll take just one click of the mouse to start or stop an instance or to delete the cached content for any site that is using Varnish and in case you’re more knowledgeable, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run a vast number of sites on your machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their performance will be observable. You will just need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-cost IPs, you will have all that you need.
