Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Each 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 if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a much faster loading website, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors won’t see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites under a cloud web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with several clicks from your Control Panel. The platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our packages and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two features that can be upgraded in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they aren’t directly linked to each other, so you can choose if you want plenty of memory for one large-size site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can take advantage of the full potential of the Varnish caching platform in case the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the Control Panel, you can easily start/restart/cancel an instance, delete the cached files independently for each site that uses Varnish or check an in-depth log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is offered by default with all semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to activate more instances too, in case you want to use Varnish with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one traffic-heavy site or run several Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you use a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will give you total control over the platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to delete the cached data, to check a log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS, so if you obtain a VPS with this Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the content caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the very server configuration that you’ve selected on the order page, but nevertheless, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to optimize the overall performance of several different frequently visited Internet sites, so the better site load speeds and the reduced load on your Virtual Private Server will be perceivable. The effect may not be evident instantly, as the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the website content that visitors request, but soon after you enable it, you will witness its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS server and to pay less money to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be activated and administered without any effort through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI and, with no more than one mouse click, you can check a comprehensive log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cache associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform for a given domain or subdomain, it will start caching the web pages browsed by your visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will observe a substantially faster website performance plus a reduced load on your dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a large number of websites on the machine.
