Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load substantially faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors won’t see old information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud hosting packages. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting packages and you will get a pretty simple-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the data caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a particular website. You can also see an elaborate system log file or erase the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of 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 MB and, for best performance, you can set a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your sites and to have many pleased visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer will permit you to use Varnish once your new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, as the platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software once your site has been published online. In case you need more memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll have more freedom. The platform will considerably reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without efforts through your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached content for any of your Internet sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS web hosting if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform is offered by default and the memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache your site content depends upon the specific Virtual Private Server package that you have picked, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal only for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to enhance the work of multiple Internet sites. It will take some time for you to see the results, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors request, but soon after that you will notice the significantly less load on the virtual server and the enhanced site loading speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to make use of a lower-end package for websites which would typically need a more expensive web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to enhance the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no additional cost, but you’ll also have total control over it via Hepsia’s user-friendly interface. It will take just a click to start or terminate an instance or to delete the cache associated with any website that’s using Varnish and in case you’re more trained, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of memory for caching purposes, so even if you host multiple websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be obvious. You’ll only have to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors open on their end. The platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers include three free-of-charge IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
