Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Every 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 if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, since the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a much faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the users won’t end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our website hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you will get an exceptionally easy-to-use interface, which will give you full control over the caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or remove any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular website. You can also check an exhaustive log file or clear the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your 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 order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your websites and to have many satisfied site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is included in the basic service set that you will receive if you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your Internet sites via our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this platform simultaneously. Since these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a couple of 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. Varnish performs best if you assign a dedicated IP to the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with a simple way of restarting any instance. On top of that, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with just one single mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our VPS server plans at no extra fee, as the caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The one and only prerequisite is that the server must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with only a few clicks. Each package offers a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will have minimum several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for multiple popular Internet sites. Soon after you activate Varnish, it will begin caching the content that your site visitors access, so you’ll notice the much better webpage loading times and the less load on the VPS very soon. The platform will allow you to use a less costly VPS, as you will not need that many resources to ensure the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you own large-sized Internet sites with numerous visitors. Maximum results are accomplished if the websites that use Varnish also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish to optimize the load speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you’ll also exert complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface. It’ll take just a click to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached content associated with any website that’s using Varnish and if you’re more sophisticated, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of memory for caching purposes, so even in case you host a vast number of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be observable. You will simply have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our servers come with 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
