Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can improve the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading website, which leads to an improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the information that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will not see outdated information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface will enable you to delete or to reboot any instance, to view elaborate system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open much faster, which means more happy website visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the website accelerator tool and enhance the speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory dedicated to Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal straight away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether lots of content will be cached for one site or if the available memory will be utilized by different sites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to stop any instance, to see the system log associated with it or to delete the cached data using one-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our VPS server packages at no additional charge, since the platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The one and only precondition is that the virtual server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. Each Virtual Private Server package features a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB, which is enough even for multiple traffic-heavy websites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your visitors access, so you will notice the considerably faster site load times and the decreased load in no time. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less high-priced virtual server, as you will not require that much power to guarantee the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you’ve got resource-consuming sites with multiple visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the websites that use the Varnish platform use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order to enhance the load speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no additional cost, but you’ll also exert full control over it through Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI. It’ll take only one single mouse click to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached files for any Internet site that is using Varnish and in case you’re more advanced, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for web content caching purposes, so even in case you run multiple websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their overall performance will be visible. You’ll only have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors load on their end. The platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers include 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
