Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load much faster, as Varnish can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the data that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing out-of-date data.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, refers to the total amount of content that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI will permit you to turn off or to restart any instance, to check comprehensive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open tremendously faster, meaning more happy website visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is part of the basic set of services that you will acquire when you decide to host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your sites through our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default system memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. Since these two things are not tied to each other, you can use a few sites with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single site. The Varnish caching platform performs best if you get a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with a simple means of rebooting any instance. Furthermore, you will be able to delete the cached contents with just one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS

You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server packages at no extra charge, as the platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole prerequisite is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Each VPS plan offers a different amount of memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for multiple resource-intensive sites. Soon after you activate Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your website visitors browse, so you will notice the significantly faster website load times and the decreased load very soon. The platform will permit you to use a less high-priced virtual machine, as you will not need that much power to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your Internet sites even if you run large websites with a lot of visitors. Optimum results are accomplished if the Internet sites that use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a more powerful web hosting solution and you acquire one of the dedicated hosting that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to improve the performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cache or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The smallest amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge collection of resource-demanding websites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a colossal load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with several different dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
