Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a site by up to one thousand 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 in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved visitor experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the information that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users won’t see out-of-date information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get a really simple-to-use graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or shut down any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a given Internet site. You can also see a detailed system log file or delete the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your sites and to have a lot of happy site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been created, since the content caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software as soon as your website has been published to the web. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server straight away. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will seriously lower the load on the server caused by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform without effort through your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cache for any of your websites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our Linux VPS servers when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is offered by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites depends upon the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal only for caching purposes. This amount is enough to enhance the work of numerous Internet sites. It will take a little time for you to detect the effects, as Varnish caches the content that visitors access, but shortly thereafter you will notice the considerably reduced server load and the improved Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a lower-end VPS package for sites which would typically require a more pricey hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a more powerful hosting solution and you acquire any of the dedicated service that we are offering, you can use the Varnish data caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no extra charge on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached files or to restart any instance with one click. The minimal amount of system memory that the caching platform can employ to cache content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense selection of large-size Internet sites, so your server will be able to handle a gigantic load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
