Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can increase the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load substantially faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a much faster loading website, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual site, the content that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our web hosting plans. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you will get an amazingly simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or delete any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a particular site. You can also view an exhaustive system log or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have plenty of happy users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish caching platform is an essential part of the standard set of services that you will get if you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your sites via our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two things aren’t bound to each other, you can use several instances with the default amount of memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single Internet site. The Varnish caching platform works best when you set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple way of restarting any instance. On top of that, you will be able to clear the cached content with only one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with each of our VPS plans when you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to use to cache your site content depends upon the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have selected, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the overall performance of multiple sites. It’ll take some time for you to observe the results, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors browse, but after that you will notice the substantially less load on the virtual machine and the accelerated Internet site loading speed. Varnish will permit you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server plan for websites which would typically need a more expensive hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish content caching platform can be activated and administered effortlessly from the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can check a detailed system log, create or restart an instance, clear the cache associated with any site and much more. Soon after you configure Varnish for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a tremendously faster website performance as well as a reduced load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host a huge number of Internet sites on your dedicated server.
