Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can increase the loading 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 in case the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a much faster loading site, which leads to an improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the content that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the website visitors will not end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting plan and if you want to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI will allow you to disable or to restart any instance, to see in-depth logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, which means more happy visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is included as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will allow you to activate more instances too, in case you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of a single traffic-heavy site or use a number of websites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will give you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached data, to check a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our VPS server packages at no additional charge, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole prerequisite is that the Virtual Private Server must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks. Each Virtual Private Server package features a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-intensive Internet sites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your site visitors browse, so you will notice the substantially better site loading speeds and the lowered load on your VPS very soon. The platform will allow you to use a less costly Virtual Private Server, as you won’t require that many resources to warrant the uninterrupted operation of your sites even if you own heavy-traffic sites with a lot of visitors. Optimum results are accomplished if the Internet sites which use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful web hosting solution and you acquire any of the dedicated servers offered by our company, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the work of your websites at no additional fee as long as the server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cache or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache website content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a vast number of large-sized Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with an enormous load while your site visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your machine will come with several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
