Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open much faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading site, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the data that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will not end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you will get an amazingly user-friendly interface, which will give you complete control over the data caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or deactivate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a particular Internet site. You can also view an in-depth system log or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your sites and to have a lot of satisfied users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting services that we offer will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated account has been activated, as the content caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load distribution software once you launch your website. If you are in need of more memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will immensely lower the load on the semi-dedicated 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 efforts from the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache for any of your Internet sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS web hosting services when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The content caching platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is enough to boost the performance of multiple Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to notice the results, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors access, but soon thereafter you will notice the substantially reduced load on your Virtual Private Server and the enhanced Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful VPS package for sites which would typically need a more pricey hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to boost the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no extra fee, but you’ll also exert complete control over it through Hepsia’s user-friendly interface. It will take only one mouse click to start or deactivate an instance or to clear the cached content associated with any Internet site that is using Varnish and if you are more competent, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of system memory for data caching purposes, so even if you run a huge number of sites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be evident. You’ll only have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the site visitors access on their end. The platform works best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers include three free-of-charge IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
