Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can increase the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load much faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means a greatly improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users won’t end up seeing old content.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use Varnish’s potential and improve your websites’ loading speed irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you’ve picked and you can activate and configure the content caching platform with several mouse clicks through the user-friendly interface offered by our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will employ the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you have plenty of content on a particular site and you get numerous website visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use Varnish. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you simple one-click controls for switching off or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with each Internet site and for viewing exhaustive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is included by default with all semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. If you are in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to create more instances too, in case you would like to use Varnish with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one large-sized Internet site or run a number of sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you have a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server 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 delete the cached data, to view a log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our VPS web hosting service in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your sites is dependent upon the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you have picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to optimize the overall performance of multiple websites. It’ll take a little time for you to see the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors open, but soon after that you will notice the considerably reduced load on your virtual machine and the increased Internet site browsing speed. Varnish will permit you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for Internet sites which would usually require a more costly web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated service that are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated server. The Varnish content caching platform can be activated and administered without any effort through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view an in-depth system log, add or restart an instance, delete the cached data for any Internet site and much more. Shortly after you activate Varnish for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the web pages requested by the site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you’ll witness a significantly faster site performance as well as a reduced load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you run multiple Internet sites on the dedicated machine.
