Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading website, which leads to a greatly improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated as well, so the visitors won’t see old info.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our Linux shared hosting. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting packages and you will get a rather user-friendly interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or remove any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a certain Internet site. You can also see an in-depth system log or erase the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your websites and to have numerous gratified site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, as the content caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software as soon as your website has been built. If you’re in need of more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine straight away. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you will enjoy more versatility. The platform will enormously decrease the load on the server that your websites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without any effort through your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content associated with any of your Internet sites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS, so in case you purchase a VPS with this Control Panel, you will be able to use the data caching platform at no extra charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the particular plan that you have picked during the subscription process, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to optimize the overall performance of a number of large sites, so the faster page loading speeds and the lowered load on your server will be perceptible. The effect may not be apparent momentarily, as the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the website content that people request, but shortly after you activate it, you’ll perceive its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS and to pay less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you need the most powerful website hosting solution and you order any of the Linux dedicated hosting offered by us, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the performance of your websites at no extra fee on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with GUI will permit you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large selection of resource-intensive websites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a huge load while your visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
