Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Anytime 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. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open much faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result is a much faster loading page, which leads to an enormously improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users won’t end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and improve the load speed of your websites regardless of the shared website hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can activate and configure the content caching platform with a few mouse clicks from the simple-to-use graphical interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you have lots of content on a given Internet site and you receive plenty of site visitors, more system memory will give you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy one-click controls for cancelling or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with each site and for viewing comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your brand new account is active, since the content caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can use this workload balancing software once your website has been built. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will enormously decrease the load on the server that your sites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without effort via your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache associated with any of your websites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish caching platform comes by default with each of the VPS web hosting services that we offer on the condition that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you’ve got a number of sites, you will notice a serious decrease in the overall server load and a tremendously better webpage loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while as the users navigate the web pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you’ll notice the effects. One of the pluses of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly plan will do the very same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites work significantly better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll acquire the Varnish data caching platform at no additional cost and you’ll have total control over it via an exceptionally simple-to-use graphical interface – you’ll be able to start, to remove or to reboot an instance, to browse an elaborate log, to clear the cached data associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Varnish will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you have traffic-consuming websites with a lot of visitors, you’ll notice the substantially faster site load times and the less load on the dedicated server. This will become a fact soon after you begin using Varnish, as it will require some time to cache the pages that people browse. You can get the most out of the platform’s potential in case the sites that are using it also use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that your dedicated server comes with a few IP addresses by default, you won’t need to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the server itself.
