Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Each time a visitor opens 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 loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading page, which means a much-improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the information that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will not see outdated content.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse via your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting packages and you can select the number of the websites that will use it and the total storage space that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they’re not tied directly to each other, so you can choose whether you need a lot of memory for a single large website or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unleash the full potential of the Varnish caching platform if the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the hosting Control Panel, you can quickly start/reboot/stop an instance, clear the cached data individually for each site that employs Varnish or view a detailed system log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers offered by us will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your brand-new account has been activated, since the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this load distribution software as soon as your site has been taken online. In case you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server immediately. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will enormously decrease the load on the machine that your websites cause, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly from your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached files for any of your sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish caching platform is included by default with all VPS servers offered by our company given that the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your sites with just a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you manage a number of sites, you’ll notice a great reduction in the server load and a considerably faster webpage load speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a little while while the users browse the website and once the site content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the result. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive Virtual Private Server plan will accomplish the same job as a more costly one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites perform considerably better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order to optimize the loading speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you will also exert full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It will take just one single click of the mouse to start or cancel an instance or to delete the cache for any Internet site that’s using Varnish and if you’re more tech-savvy, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for data caching purposes, so even if you host an enormous number of Internet sites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the difference in their overall performance will be noticeable. You’ll simply need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors browse on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our servers come with 3 free-of-charge IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
