Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a website 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 if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a much faster loading page, which means a much-improved visitor experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the data that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will not see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your websites under a cloud web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with several clicks via your Control Panel. The data caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared hosting packages and you can choose the number of the websites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be available for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they’re not tied directly to each other, so you can choose whether you need plenty of memory for a single large website or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can use the full potential of Varnish in case the websites use a dedicated IP address. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can swiftly start/restart/remove an instance, delete the cached contents independently for each website that employs the Varnish platform or see a comprehensive system log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web app accelerator and improve the loading speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you will be able to enable an instance with no more than a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal immediately. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if lots of content will be cached for a single site or whether the available memory will be used by different Internet sites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to shut down any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached content using single-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS servers, so if you acquire a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to take advantage of the data caching platform at no additional fee. Varnish can use different amounts of memory for caching purposes based on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve picked on the order form, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to boost the performance of a handful of resource-intensive Internet sites, so the faster website load speeds and the lowered load on your virtual machine will be perceivable. The result may not be evident immediately, since Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that users browse, but shortly after you set it up, you will feel its full potential. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end server and to give less cash to get the very same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be enabled and managed without efforts from the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can see an elaborate log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached content associated with any site and much, much more. Shortly after you activate Varnish for a certain domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the webpages loaded by the visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will perceive a significantly better website performance plus a reduced load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you run a huge number of sites on the dedicated server.
