Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Every time a visitor opens any page on a site 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 web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load substantially faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result is a considerably faster loading site, which leads to an enormously improved visitor experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the content that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors will never see outdated information.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting package and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI will permit you to disable or to restart any instance, to check exhaustive system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load much faster, meaning more happy visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator and accelerate any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra cost and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you straight away. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of content will be cached for one website or whether the available memory will be used by several Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to discontinue any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to clear the cached content using 1-click controls. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the Internet sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish platform comes by default with each of the Linux VPS packages offered by us on the condition that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the work of your websites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you have several sites, you’ll notice a substantial reduction in the overall server load and a tremendously faster web page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a little while while the visitors navigate the web pages and once the content has been cached, you’ll see the effects. One of the pluses of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive Virtual Private Server package will do the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work better, but you’ll also spare some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you buy one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to improve the overall performance of your Internet sites at no extra cost as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for an enormous collection of large-size sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a colossal system load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
