Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based 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 in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated too, so the website visitors will never see outdated information.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting plan and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to remove or to reboot any instance, to check exhaustive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load substantially faster, which means more satisfied website visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is an essential part of the default set of services that you’ll obtain in case you decide to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your websites via our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. Since these two things aren’t linked to each other, you can use a couple of Internet sites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single site. The Varnish platform works best when you allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you an easy way of rebooting any instance. What’s more, you will be able to clear the cached data with only one single mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS web hosting plans, so if you buy a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make the most of the caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you have picked during the registration process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to improve the performance of several traffic-hungry Internet sites, so the faster web page browsing speeds and the less load on the virtual machine will be noticeable. The effect may not be evident straight away, since the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the site content that people browse, but shortly after you activate it, you will perceive its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS server and to give less cash to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish data caching platform can be activated and administered without any effort through Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can view a detailed system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached content associated with any website and much more. Soon after you set up Varnish for a certain domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the webpages browsed by your site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a significantly faster website performance as well as a decreased load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host an immense number of sites on the dedicated machine.
