Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can boost the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based 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. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a much faster loading website, which means an enormously improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing old information.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting packages and you will get a really simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or remove any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a certain Internet site. You can also check an in-depth log file or clear the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data 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 top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your websites and to have plenty of pleased website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated plans that we offer and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your account. In case you’re in need of more, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same section will permit you to add more instances as well, if you would like to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one resource-requiring website or use a number of sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of Varnish in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will give you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents, to view a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform is included by default with all VPS hosting plans that we are offering as long as the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several Internet sites, you’ll notice a great decrease in the overall server load and a substantially better page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while while the visitors browse the web pages and once the website content has been cached, you will distinguish the result. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly VPS package will do the exact same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your sites perform better, but you’ll also spare a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll get the Varnish data caching platform at no extra charge and you’ll exert total control over it through an extremely user-friendly graphical interface – you’ll be able to start, to stop or to reboot an instance, to see an exhaustive system log, to clear the cached content for any Internet site and much more. Varnish will have several GB of system memory at its disposal, so even if you manage resource-hungry websites with lots of visitors, you will notice the much faster website loading times and the less load on the dedicated machine. This will happen soon after you start using the Varnish platform, since it will require a certain amount of time to cache the pages that users browse. You can make the most of the platform’s capability in case the websites that are using it also use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that your dedicated server comes with several IP addresses by default, you won’t have to pay anything on top of the monthly charge for the server itself.
