Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Every 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 in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open much faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a substantially faster loading page, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the information that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old information.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and accelerate the speed of your sites irrespective of the shared website hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can enable and configure the content caching platform with several clicks of the mouse using the easy-to-work-with GUI offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got lots of content on a given site and you win a lot of visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you easy 1-click controls for cancelling or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache for each Internet site and for viewing in-depth logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers that we are offering will permit you to use Varnish once your brand new account has been opened, since the platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been taken online. In case you are in need of more system memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server straight away. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more flexibility. The Varnish caching platform will enormously decrease the load on the machine generated by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without effort from the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached files associated with any of your Internet sites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our VPS servers if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to utilize to cache your site content depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve chosen, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for caching purposes. This amount is enough to optimize the overall performance of multiple sites. It’ll take a little time for you to detect the effects, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors request, but soon after that you’ll notice the considerably reduced load on your virtual machine and the improved Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to make use of a less powerful VPS plan for sites which would normally need a more costly hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful web hosting solution and you acquire one of the dedicated servers that we are offering, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to improve the work of your websites at no extra fee on the condition that the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with GUI will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to clear the cached contents or to reboot any instance with one click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a huge number of large-sized sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a huge system load while your site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
