Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a substantially faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the users won’t see out-of-date information.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

You can unlock Varnish’s potential and enhance the loading speed of your websites regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you’ve selected and you can add and configure the data caching platform with a few clicks of the mouse via the simple-to-use graphical interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got plenty of content on a particular site and you gain a lot of visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy 1-click controls for shutting down or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with any website and for checking detailed logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. If you’re in need of more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same section will allow you to enable more instances too, if you would like to use the Varnish platform with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single resource-demanding Internet site or use several different sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cached files, to see a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with all our VPS hosting plans when you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform is offered by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your website content depends upon the given Virtual Private Server package that you have selected, but even with the lower-end packages, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal only for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the work of multiple websites. It will take a little time for you to distinguish the results, since Varnish caches the content that site visitors request, but after that you’ll notice the considerably reduced load on your virtual machine and the increased website loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful package for sites which would usually need a more high-priced web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans which are ordered with the custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be activated and managed without efforts through Hepsia’s intuitive GUI and, with no more than one single click, you can check a comprehensive log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cache for any website and much more. Soon after you enable Varnish for a given domain or subdomain, it will start caching the pages accessed by the website visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll observe a substantially better website performance and a lowered server load. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you host an enormous number of websites on your server.
