Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on the content itself. Every 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 in case the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, since the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a much faster loading site, which means an improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites under a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with several mouse clicks via your hosting Control Panel. The platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared packages and you can choose how many websites will use it and the maximum storage space that will be used for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they are not directly linked to each other, so you can choose if you want lots of memory for one single large-size site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unleash the full potential of the Varnish caching platform if the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the hosting Control Panel, you can swiftly start/reboot/remove an instance, clear the cached files individually for each website that employs the Varnish platform or check an in-depth log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the web accelerator tool and boost the speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory particularly for Varnish at no additional cost and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether lots of content will be cached for a single site or whether the available memory will be utilized by multiple websites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to see the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached files using 1-click controls. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with all Linux VPS hosting packages that we are offering given that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you own a handful of sites, you’ll notice a significant decrease in the server load and a considerably faster website loading speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a while as the visitors browse the website and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will distinguish the effects. One of the pros of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the very same job as a more costly one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites work considerably better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish to optimize the speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional fee, but you will also exert full control over it through Hepsia’s user-friendly graphical interface. It’ll take just one mouse click to start or discontinue an instance or to clear the cache associated with any site that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you’re more sophisticated, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of system memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you host a lot of websites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the difference in their performance will be visible. You’ll only have to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform performs best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
