Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load much faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a much faster loading website, which leads to an improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated as well, so the website visitors won’t see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given moment. Hepsia’s intuitive interface will permit you to stop or to reboot any instance, to see elaborate logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, meaning more happy website users and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator tool and increase the loading speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal right away. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether lots of content will be cached for a single website or whether the memory will be used by multiple websites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to remove any instance, to check the system log associated with it or to delete the cached files using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting packages, so if you order a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the data caching platform at no additional fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes based on the specific configuration that you’ve picked during the VPS order process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to improve the performance of several resource-requiring sites, so the faster website browsing speeds and the decreased load on your VPS server will be perceptible. The effect may not be observable straight away, as the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that visitors open, but soon after you activate it, you’ll feel its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server and to give less cash to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated web hosting which are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be set up and administered without any effort via Hepsia’s time and effort saving GUI and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can check a detailed log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached content for any Internet site and much more. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform for a certain domain or subdomain, it will start caching the webpages loaded by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will witness a considerably better site performance as well as a reduced load. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you host a large number of Internet sites on the dedicated server.
