Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on its content. 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 in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The result is a much faster loading page, which leads to an immensely improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors won’t see outdated content.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our cloud website hosting plans. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you’ll get a rather user-friendly graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or deactivate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific website. You can also see an in-depth log file or clear the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for top performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your sites and to have numerous satisfied visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is included by default with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same Upgrades section will enable you to add more instances too, if you want to use Varnish with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single resource-heavy Internet site or run several websites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you use a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to clear the cached data, to see a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS web hosting plans, so in case you acquire a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take full advantage of the content caching platform at no extra charge. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for caching purposes based on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you have picked during the order process, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to improve the performance of several different resource-demanding sites, so the faster web page loading speeds and the decreased load will be noticeable. The result may not be apparent instantly, since Varnish will require some time to cache the site content that visitors access, but shortly after you activate it, you will feel its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to give less cash to get the very same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful hosting solution and you obtain one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your sites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its intuitive interface will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached files or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The smallest amount of system memory that the caching platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large selection of traffic-intensive Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a tremendous load while your website visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your server will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
