Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, as Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading site, which means an enormously improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud hosting packages. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get an exceptionally easy-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or turn off any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a specific site. You can also see an elaborate system log or clear the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your sites and to have many pleased site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by us will allow you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated account has been activated, as the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software once your site has been taken online. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The platform will enormously decrease the load on the semi-dedicated server caused by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without any effort from your Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached data associated with any of your websites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS packages when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is offered by default and the memory that it will be able to utilize to cache your site content depends on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is enough to enhance the performance of multiple Internet sites. It will take a little time for you to see the effects, since Varnish caches the content that visitors request, but after that you’ll notice the substantially reduced load on the VPS server and the increased Internet site load speed. Varnish will permit you to use a less powerful plan for Internet sites that would normally require a more pricey web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you want a more powerful web hosting solution and you purchase any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the performance of your Internet sites at no extra cost on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached files or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of system memory that Varnish can employ to cache content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge collection of traffic-heavy Internet sites, so your server will be able to deal with a tremendous system load while your site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
