Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can boost the load 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 if the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load much faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the information that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the users will never see outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites under a cloud website hosting account with our company, you will be able to activate Varnish with a couple of mouse clicks from your Control Panel. The data caching platform is available as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting plans and you can select the number of the websites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they aren’t tied directly to each other, so you can decide whether you want a lot of memory for one large-scale site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can use the full potential of Varnish if the sites use a dedicated IP. With the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/restart/stop an instance, clear the cached data independently for each site which uses Varnish or view a comprehensive system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the website accelerator and improve the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra cost and you can activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you straight away. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of content will be cached for a single website or if the available memory will be used by multiple websites. Hepsia will allow you to reboot or to stop any instance, to see the system log file for it or to delete the cached data using one-click controls. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our VPS web hosting plans if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites is dependent on the specific plan that you have picked, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal exclusively for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the work of multiple Internet sites. It will take a little time for you to detect the results, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors browse, but soon after that you will notice the significantly reduced load on the Virtual Private Server and the increased site loading speed. Varnish will permit you to make use of a lower-end Virtual Private Server package for Internet sites which would typically need a more pricey hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will get Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll exert total control over it via an exceptionally easy-to-work-with GUI – you’ll be able to start, to disable or to restart an instance, to browse a detailed log, to delete the cached files for any site and much, much more. Varnish will have several GB of virtual memory at its disposal, so even if you manage heavy sites with a lot of visitors, you will notice the significantly better web page load times and the reduced load. This will happen soon after you start using the Varnish platform, since it will need some time to cache the web pages that people request. You can get the most out of the platform’s capacity if the websites that are using it also use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that your server comes with a couple of IPs by default, you won’t have to pay anything on top of your monthly charge for the server itself.
