Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on the content itself. Every 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 if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading website, which leads to an improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors will not see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared website hosting package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, displays the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI will enable you to cancel or to reboot any instance, to check exhaustive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open substantially faster, which means more happy users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web application accelerator tool and speed up any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a few clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether lots of data will be cached for a single site or whether the memory will be utilized by multiple websites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to shut down any instance, to see the system log associated with it or to clear the cached files using 1-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS packages, so in case you get a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the data caching platform at no extra cost. Varnish can use different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the very Virtual Private Server package that you have selected during the signup procedure, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to improve the overall performance of several large-scale sites, so the better site load speeds and the less server load will be perceivable. The result may not be apparent right away, since Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that people browse, but soon after you enable it, you will observe its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end server and to pay less money to get the exact same performance you’d get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get the Varnish caching platform at no additional charge and you’ll have total control over it through a quite intuitive interface – you will be able to start, to disable or to restart an instance, to check an exhaustive log, to clear the cache for any site and much, much more. The Varnish platform will have several gigabytes of memory at its disposal, so even if you host traffic-hungry Internet sites with a lot of visitors, you’ll notice the considerably faster page loading speeds and the less load on the dedicated machine. This will happen soon after you begin using Varnish, as it will need some time to cache the web pages that users request. You can get the most out of the platform’s capacity in case the Internet sites that are using it also use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that your dedicated server comes with several IP addresses by default, you will not need to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the machine itself.
