Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can increase the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Each 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 if the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading page, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will not end up seeing old information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and enhance your sites’ speed irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can enable and set up the data caching platform with several clicks of the mouse from the simple-to-use GUI offered by our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to choose two different things – how many sites will employ the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you have lots of content on a given website and you get lots of website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will offer you easy 1-click controls for terminating or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for each website and for checking comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is an essential part of the standard set of services that you will get if you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your websites through our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the Internet sites that can use this platform simultaneously. Since these two features aren’t bound to each other, you can use several instances with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single Internet site. The Varnish caching platform performs best when you allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with an easy way of rebooting any instance. Furthermore, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with only one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS web hosting if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites depends upon the given package that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have no less than several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to enhance the work of multiple Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to notice the results, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors open, but after that you’ll notice the considerably lowered load on your Virtual Private Server and the improved Internet site load speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server package for websites that would typically require a more costly hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use Varnish to improve the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you’ll also exert total control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface. It will take just a click to start or cancel an instance or to delete the cached content associated with any website that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more knowledgeable, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of system memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you run plenty of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be detectable. You will simply need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors open on their end. The platform performs best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers come with 3 cost-free IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
