Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Every 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 when 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 considerably faster, as Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which means an immensely improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors won’t see outdated information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and optimize your websites’ load speed regardless of the cloud hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can activate and configure the platform with a few mouse clicks using the intuitive interface offered by our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many Internet sites will use the Varnish caching platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got lots of content on a specific website and you receive numerous website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy 1-click controls for switching off or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with each site and for checking comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish caching platform is included in the default service set that you will acquire if you choose to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your websites via our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content 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 platform simultaneously. Since these two things aren’t linked to each other, you can use a couple of Internet sites with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single web site. Varnish works best if you use a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple way of rebooting any instance. Also, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with only one click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS packages, so in case you acquire a server with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to make the most of the caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes depending on the very sever setup that you’ve picked on the order form, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to improve the work of several different busy websites, so the faster page load speeds and the decreased load on the VPS will be perceptible. The effect may not be detectable momentarily, as Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the website content that users access, but soon after you activate it, you’ll witness its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a lower-end server and to give less cash to get the very same performance you’d get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can employ Varnish to improve the speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you will also exert total control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface. It will take just one click to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached data associated with any website that is using the Varnish platform and in case you are more advanced, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of system memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you host an enormous number of websites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their performance will be visible. You’ll simply need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our servers include three free-of-charge IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
