Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load much faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated information.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to stop or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, meaning more happy site visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is an essential part of the standard set of services that you’ll receive when you choose to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your websites through our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform at the same time. Since these two things aren’t bound to each other, you can use a few websites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single website. Varnish performs best when you get a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with an easy means of restarting any instance. On top of that, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents with only one click.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS hosting services, so if you order a VPS with this Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the data caching platform at no extra fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for caching purposes based on the specific sever setup that you have picked during the order process, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the work of a handful of resource-heavy sites, so the better website loading speeds and the lowered load on the server will be noticeable. The result may not be visible straight away, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that people access, but shortly after you enable it, you will perceive its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a more powerful website hosting solution and you purchase any of the Linux dedicated web hosting offered by us, you can use the Varnish platform to boost the overall performance of your Internet sites at no extra charge as long as the server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use GUI will enable you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cache or to restart any instance with a click. The smallest amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a vast number of busy Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with an enormous system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
