Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can increase the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Each time a visitor accesses 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading website, which means an immensely improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud website hosting plans. You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared plans and you’ll get a truly user-friendly GUI, which will grant you complete control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or cancel any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a certain site. You can also see an exhaustive system log file or delete the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have many satisfied website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web accelerator tool and increase the loading speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of system memory particularly for Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantly. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if lots of data will be cached for a single website or whether the memory will be utilized by multiple Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to reboot or to disable any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to clear the cached data using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the websites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed VPS web hosting plans, so if you order a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to make the most of the content caching platform at no additional fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for caching purposes depending on the particular server configuration that you have chosen during the subscription process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to enhance the work of a handful of resource-demanding sites, so the better page load speeds and the less load on the VPS server will be discernible. The effect may not be detectable instantly, since the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that visitors access, but soon after you activate it, you’ll witness its full potential. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end server and to give less money to get the very same performance you’d get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need the most powerful website hosting solution and you acquire one of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the Varnish platform to enhance the overall performance of your Internet sites at no extra charge on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly GUI will enable you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached contents or to reboot any instance with one single click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a vast number of traffic-heavy Internet sites, so your server will be able to deal with an enormous load while your site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with several dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
