Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can increase the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Each time 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old information.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our cloud website hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you’ll get a quite simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or stop any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific site. You can also see a detailed log file or delete the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for top performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your sites and to have many gratified visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which comes by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you are in need of more than that, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same Upgrades section will enable you to add more instances as well, in case you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single resource-demanding website or run several sites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you have a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one single click, you’ll be able to clear the cached data, to view a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

Varnish comes by default with each of the Linux VPS web hosting services that we are offering on the condition that the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the work of your sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you run several Internet sites, you will notice a significant decrease in the overall server load and a substantially faster site load speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a while as the users navigate the site and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will notice the effects. One of the advantages of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey plan will accomplish the same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites perform much better, but you will also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All dedicated servers hosting which are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be configured and administered without any effort through the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving graphical interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can browse an in-depth system log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cached data associated with any site and much, much more. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the webpages requested by the visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will perceive a substantially better website performance as well as a decreased load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run an enormous number of websites on the dedicated machine.
