Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. 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 opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated information.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you will be able to activate Varnish with several clicks through your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered as an upgrade with all our hosting packages and you can choose the number of the sites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they are not directly linked to each other, so you can decide whether you want a lot of memory for one large-sized site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can take advantage of the full potential of the Varnish caching platform if the websites use a dedicated IP. With the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/stop an instance, delete the cached data individually for each site that employs Varnish or see an in-depth log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish comes by default with all Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same Upgrades section will permit you to enable more instances too, in case you would like to use the Varnish platform with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single traffic-consuming Internet site or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of Varnish if you use a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached data, to view a log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Varnish with any of our virtual private server packages at no extra cost, since the platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole requirement is that the virtual machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks. Each VPS plan comes with a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is sufficient even for multiple resource-demanding Internet sites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your site visitors request, so you will notice the significantly better website loading speeds and the reduced load on the VPS server very soon. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less costly VPS, since you won’t require that much power to warrant the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you have large Internet sites with numerous visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the websites that use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use Varnish to enhance the speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you’ll also have full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface. It’ll take only one click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cached files associated with any site that is using Varnish and in case you are more sophisticated, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of virtual memory for data caching purposes, so even if you run many Internet sites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be visible. You’ll only have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but since our dedicated servers come with three free-of-charge IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
