Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based 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 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 open substantially faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading website, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will not see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s potential and increase the loading speed of your websites regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you’ve picked and you can enable and set up the platform with several mouse clicks through the simple-to-use GUI offered by our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got lots of content on a particular Internet site and you gain a lot of website visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will provide you with easy 1-click buttons for turning off or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for each Internet site and for viewing exhaustive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting services that we offer will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new account is active, since the content caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load distribution software as soon as your site has been launched. In case you need more memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server right away. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will enormously reduce the load generated by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with no effort via the Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you have, to delete the cache for any of your Internet sites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS

Varnish comes by default with each of the VPS offered by our company as long as the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the performance of your websites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you manage several websites, you’ll notice a substantial reduction in the overall server load and a much better website load speed. The platform will need to work for a little while as the visitors browse the web pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the effect. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive Virtual Private Server plan will accomplish the very same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can employ Varnish to accelerate the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no additional fee, but you will also exert complete control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface. It will take just a click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cache for any website that is using Varnish and if you are more tech-savvy, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of virtual memory for site content caching purposes, so even in case you host plenty of websites on your machine and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their performance will be detectable. You will only need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors open on their end. The platform performs best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
