Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed 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 is a considerably faster loading page, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated as well, so the visitors will not end up seeing outdated content.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux website hosting. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages and you will get a really intuitive interface, which will give you full control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or shut down any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a particular site. You can also see an in-depth log or clear the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimal performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have lots of satisfied visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can use the web application accelerator tool and improve the load speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for Varnish at no additional fee and you will be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need 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 immediately. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether lots of data will be cached for one website or if the available memory will be used by multiple sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to restart or to disable any instance, to view the system log for it or to delete the cached data using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS

You can use the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache your site content depends on the specific VPS package that you’ve picked, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have no less than several hundred MB of memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the performance of multiple sites. It will take a little time for you to distinguish the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors access, but soon after that you’ll notice the considerably less load on the machine and the accelerated website browsing speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for sites that would usually require a more expensive web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will acquire the Varnish data caching platform at no additional charge and you’ll have complete control over it via an amazingly time and effort saving interface – you will be able to start, to stop or to reboot an instance, to check a detailed log, to clear the cached content associated with any website and much more. The Varnish platform will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you run traffic-intensive websites with a vast number of visitors, you’ll notice the tremendously faster website loading times and the decreased server load. This will become a fact soon after you start using Varnish, since it will require some time to cache the site content that visitors browse. You can make the most of the platform’s capability in case the sites that are using it also use a dedicated IP, but since your server comes with a couple of IP addresses by default, you will not need to pay anything on top of the monthly charge for the server itself.
