Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading page, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the data that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will not end up seeing old content.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and improve your websites’ load speed irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you’ve picked and you can add and configure the platform with a few mouse clicks through the intuitive graphical interface offered by our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you have a lot of content on a particular Internet site and you win numerous website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple 1-click controls for shutting down or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache for each website and for seeing exhaustive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is part of the standard service set that you will get when you decide to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your sites via our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this platform simultaneously. As these two features aren’t linked to each other, you can use several instances with the default amount of memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish caching platform performs best if you get a dedicated IP for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with an easy means of restarting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to delete the cached content with just a click.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

Varnish comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting offered by us given that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can enhance the work of your sites with just a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a lower-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own a handful of Internet sites, you’ll notice a serious reduction in the server load and a much better website load speed. The platform will need to work for a while as the users navigate the site and once the site content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the results. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive package will do the exact same job as a more pricey one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites work significantly better, but you will also spare some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can use Varnish to accelerate the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you’ll also have complete control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface. It will take only one single click to start or terminate an instance or to clear the cache associated with any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more advanced, you can also check the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 gigabytes of memory for caching purposes, so even in case you run a huge number of websites on your dedicated machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their performance will be apparent. You’ll simply need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the site visitors open on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our servers include 3 free IPs, you will have all that you need.
