Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a substantially faster loading page, which leads to an enormously improved visitor experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will not end up seeing outdated content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux shared hosting packages. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans and you will get a rather simple-to-work-with GUI, which will give you complete control over the caching platform. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or disable any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular site. You can also check a comprehensive log file or erase the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your sites and to have plenty of happy website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator tool and enhance the loading speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional charge and you will be able to add an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you momentarily. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of content will be cached for one site or whether the available memory will be utilized by multiple websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to remove any instance, to see the system log associated with it or to clear the cached data using 1-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS web hosting packages, so in case you acquire a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to make full use of the data caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the specific server configuration that you’ve chosen during the signup procedure, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to optimize the work of a number of popular websites, so the faster site load speeds and the less load on your VPS will be discernible. The result may not be evident immediately, as Varnish will need some time to cache the content that users request, but shortly after you activate it, you’ll feel its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS server and to pay less money to get the same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting which are ordered with the in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be set up and administered with ease via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can browse a detailed system log, add or restart an instance, delete the cache for any site and much more. Soon after you set up Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the webpages accessed by the site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will perceive a considerably better website performance plus a decreased load on your dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host an enormous number of Internet sites on your dedicated machine.
