Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can boost the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Anytime a visitor opens 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. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load tremendously faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading site, which means a much-improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish caches in its memory is updated as well, so the users will not end up seeing out-of-date information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s user-friendly interface will permit you to shut down or to restart any instance, to view in-depth system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load much faster, which means more satisfied website visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same Upgrades section will enable you to enable more instances too, in case you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of a single traffic-intensive site or run several sites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of Varnish in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you’ll be able to clear the cached files, to see a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS

You can take advantage of Varnish with all our virtual private server packages at no extra cost, since the platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The one and only prerequisite is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a few mouse clicks. Each Virtual Private Server plan comes with a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for several large-scale websites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your visitors browse, so you will notice the substantially faster page loading times and the reduced load in no time. Varnish will permit you to use a less costly VPS, since you won’t need that much power to warrant the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you manage resource-intensive Internet sites with lots of visitors. Maximum results are achieved if the websites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you want a more powerful hosting solution and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly graphical interface will permit you to keep an eye on platform processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense selection of resource-hungry websites, so your server will be able to cope with a massive system load while your visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your machine will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
