Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Every time a visitor accesses 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 browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result is a substantially faster loading site, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the users will not end up seeing old content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our Linux shared hosting packages. You can add it to your hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get a rather simple-to-use graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or deactivate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific website. You can also see a comprehensive log file or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your websites and to have a lot of gratified website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Varnish by default, so you can use the web accelerator tool and improve the loading speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 MB of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you can enable an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you right away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether lots of content will be cached for one site or if the available memory will be used by different Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached data using one-click controls. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP to the Internet sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS web hosting packages, so in case you acquire a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take advantage of the caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes based on the very sever setup that you have selected during the subscription process, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to boost the overall performance of a handful of resource-heavy websites, so the better page loading speeds and the decreased load on the VPS server will be perceivable. The result may not be obvious immediately, since the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the website content that visitors request, but soon after you enable it, you’ll witness its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use Varnish to boost the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no extra fee, but you’ll also exert full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface. It’ll take only one click of the mouse to start or cancel an instance or to clear the cached content associated with any site that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more practiced, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for site content caching purposes, so even in case you run lots of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be visible. You’ll only need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever content the visitors open on their end. The platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 free-of-charge IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
