Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing out-of-date information.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared hosting service and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will allow you to cancel or to reboot any instance, to view comprehensive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load considerably faster, which means more satisfied site visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company will allow you to employ Varnish once your new semi-dedicated account has been created, as the data caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software as soon as your website has been launched online. In case you need more memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server immediately. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The caching platform will noticeably reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine generated by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without effort via your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached data for any of your sites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server packages at no additional cost, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The one and only prerequisite is that the VPS server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each VPS package features a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for several busy Internet sites. Soon after you activate Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your site visitors request, so you’ll notice the significantly better Internet site loading speeds and the reduced server load in no time. The platform will allow you to use a less expensive VPS, since you will not need that much power to guarantee the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you have large websites with numerous visitors. Maximum results are achieved if the Internet sites which use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish to boost the load speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no additional fee, but you will also have complete control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface. It will take only one single click to start or cancel an instance or to delete the cache for any website that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more experienced, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of system memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you run plenty of websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their performance will be apparent. You’ll only have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the site visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers include three charge-free IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
