Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Each time a visitor opens 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 accesses 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 content many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will not see outdated data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared web hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface will permit you to discontinue or to restart any instance, to see detailed system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open significantly faster, meaning more satisfied website visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web accelerator and increase the loading speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you will be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal straight away. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of data will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be utilized by several Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to delete any instance, to see the system log for it or to clear the cached files using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS hosting when you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends upon the specific VPS plan that you have selected, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the overall performance of multiple websites. It will take some time for you to observe the results, as the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors access, but soon after that you’ll notice the significantly less load on your server and the increased site load speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a lower-end plan for websites which would normally need a more expensive web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish platform can be enabled and managed without efforts through Hepsia’s time and effort saving GUI and, with no more than one single click, you can view an in-depth system log, create or restart an instance, delete the cached content associated with any site and much more. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the webpages opened by your website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will observe a tremendously better website performance as well as a lowered load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a vast number of sites on your server.
