Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a much faster loading site, which means an enormously improved browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our Linux shared web hosting services. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages and you will get a pretty user-friendly GUI, which will grant you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a given website. You can also see a detailed log or erase the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can set a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your websites and to have many satisfied site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is included in the basic service set that you will receive when you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your websites through our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of 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 Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two features are not tied to each other, you can use several websites with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single site. The Varnish platform works best if you assign a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with a simple means of restarting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with only a click.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is included by default with each of the VPS web hosting services that we offer given that the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can enhance the work of your sites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run several Internet sites, you’ll notice a significant decrease in the server load and a tremendously better site loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while as the users navigate the pages and once the site content has been cached, you’ll see the results. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive VPS package will do the same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work considerably better, but you’ll also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to enhance the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you will also have complete control over it through Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface. It’ll take just one single mouse click to start or stop an instance or to delete the cached data for any Internet site that’s using Varnish and in case you’re more tech-savvy, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of system memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you run many sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be apparent. You’ll just have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors browse on their end. The platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include three free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
