Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can boost the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Each 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 accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading site, which leads to an improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will not end up seeing outdated info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you will get a rather simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you complete control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or remove any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific website. You can also see a detailed log file or clear the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your websites and to have many satisfied site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated services offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish once your new semi-dedicated server account is active, since the data caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this load balancing software once you launch your site. In case you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine straight away. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will have more versatility. The caching platform will substantially decrease the load on the server generated by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform effortlessly from the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache for any of your websites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

Varnish comes by default with each of the Linux VPS web hosting services that we’re offering on the condition that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got several sites, you’ll notice a great reduction in the server load and a much better page load speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a little while as the users navigate the pages and once the content has been cached, you’ll observe the effect. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive plan will accomplish the same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work considerably better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will acquire the Varnish content caching platform at no extra charge and you will have total control over it via an extremely user-friendly graphical interface – you will be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot an instance, to see an in-depth log, to clear the cached content associated with any site and much, much more. Varnish will have several GB of system memory at its disposal, so even if you run popular Internet sites with a vast number of visitors, you will notice the substantially better site load times and the lowered load on the machine. This will happen shortly after you start using Varnish, since it will require some time to cache the website content that visitors access. You can make the most of the platform’s capabilities in case the sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that your server includes several IP addresses by default, you will not need to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the server itself.
