Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Anytime 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 accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, since Varnish can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading website, which means a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will not see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our web hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you will get a rather user-friendly GUI, which will grant you complete control over the data caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can restart or turn off any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific Internet site. You can also view an in-depth system log or delete the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimal performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your sites and to have a lot of happy visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes as standard with all semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same section will allow you to add more instances as well, in case you would like to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one single resource-demanding site or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents, to check a log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform is included by default with each of the VPS servers that we’re offering given that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the work of your websites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run a handful of websites, you’ll notice an immense reduction in the server load and a much better site load speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a while while the visitors browse the site and as soon as the content has been cached, you will observe the effects. One of the pluses of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly VPS plan will accomplish the same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform much better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order to enhance the speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no extra charge, but you’ll also have complete control over it through Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface. It’ll take only one single click of the mouse to start or discontinue an instance or to clear the cached files associated with any website that is using Varnish and in case you’re more tech-savvy, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of system memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you run an enormous number of Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be obvious. You will simply have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 charge-free IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
