Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can improve 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 server and the web page will open considerably faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will not see out-of-date information.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux web hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of data that the platform can store at any given moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to discontinue or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load significantly faster, meaning more satisfied site visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in the account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will permit you to create more instances too, if you want to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two things can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one frequently visited website or use several sites with the default memory. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cache, to view a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Varnish with all our virtual private server packages at no extra cost, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole requirement is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each Virtual Private Server package comes with a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite sufficient even for multiple resource-consuming Internet sites. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your site visitors access, so you will notice the tremendously faster page load speeds and the reduced load on the machine in no time. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less pricey server, since you will not require that much power to sustain the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you have high-demand websites with plenty of visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the websites that use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to optimize the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no additional fee, but you will also exert total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI. It’ll take just one click of the mouse to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cached content associated with any site that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more tech-savvy, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of system memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you run multiple websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be observable. You will just need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include three cost-free IPs, you will have everything you need.
