Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. 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 if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors won’t see old content.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our website hosting. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared plans and you’ll get a really simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching system. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or discontinue any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific site. You can also check an in-depth log or erase the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your websites and to have many satisfied visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish once your brand-new account is active, as the content caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been launched online. If you need more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server in an instant. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more flexibility. The caching platform will greatly lower the load on the machine generated by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort via your Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/stop any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content for any of your Internet sites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no additional fee, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only condition is that the VPS must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a few mouse clicks. Each plan includes a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite sufficient even for multiple resource-consuming Internet sites. Soon after you set up Varnish, it will begin caching the content that your visitors open, so you will notice the substantially faster Internet site load speeds and the decreased load on your virtual machine in no time. Varnish will permit you to use a less high-priced server, as you will not require that much power to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you manage resource-consuming Internet sites with lots of visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the Internet sites that use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to enhance the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no additional cost, but you will also have total control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI. It will take only one single mouse click to start or stop an instance or to delete the cached data associated with any Internet site that is using Varnish and in case you are more trained, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of system memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you host numerous websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be noticeable. You will only need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors browse on their end. The platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers come with three free IPs, you will have everything you need.
