Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can improve the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending 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 when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors won’t end up seeing old content.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting packages. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting packages and you’ll get a quite simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching system. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or shut down any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a certain Internet site. You can also view an elaborate system log or clear the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for maximum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have a lot of gratified visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same Upgrades section will enable you to enable more instances as well, in case you wish to use Varnish with more websites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single traffic-heavy Internet site or use several different Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform if you have a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to clear the cached data, to view a system log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish caching platform comes by default with all Linux VPS that we offer as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the work of your websites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage a handful of websites, you’ll notice a serious reduction in the overall server load and a significantly better site load speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a while as the visitors browse the website and once the site content has been cached, you will observe the effect. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the very same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites work substantially better, but you will also spare some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

All dedicated hosting that are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated server. The Varnish caching platform can be enabled and managed without effort via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI and, with no more than a click, you can see an elaborate system log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cached content for any website and much more. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages requested by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you’ll witness a significantly better site performance plus a decreased load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a lot of websites on your server.
