Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open considerably faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result is a considerably faster loading website, which leads to a greatly improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users won’t end up seeing outdated info.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to terminate or to restart any instance, to see comprehensive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load considerably faster, which means more satisfied website visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is included in the standard set of services that you will obtain in case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your sites through our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this platform simultaneously. As these two features are not bound to each other, you can use a few websites with the default amount of memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single site. The Varnish platform works best when you allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple means of restarting any instance. Furthermore, you’ll be able to delete the cached data with only one single click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with all our VPS server plans at no additional fee, since the platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The sole prerequisite is that the virtual machine must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each plan includes a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite sufficient even for several large-sized Internet sites. Shortly after you activate Varnish, it will start caching the content that your website visitors request, so you will notice the much faster site load times and the less load on your VPS in no time. The platform will permit you to use a less costly VPS server, as you won’t need that much power to warrant the proper operation of your sites even if you have large-sized sites with lots of visitors. Maximum results are accomplished if the Internet sites which use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish to improve the speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you will also have complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface. It’ll take only one click of the mouse to start or discontinue an instance or to clear the cached data associated with any Internet site that’s using the Varnish platform and if you’re more knowledgeable, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of memory for caching purposes, so even if you host a lot of sites on your server and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be obvious. You will simply have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors open on their end. The platform performs best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our servers come with three free-of-charge IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
