Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Each 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 opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a considerably faster loading site, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors won’t see old info.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared website hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI will enable you to stop or to restart any instance, to check detailed logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open significantly faster, meaning more pleased site visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish platform is an essential part of the standard service set that you will acquire in case you decide to host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your websites via our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two things aren’t bound to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single Internet site. The Varnish caching platform performs best if you use a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you an easy means of restarting any instance. Furthermore, you will be able to clear the cached files with just one mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish platform comes by default with all Linux VPS hosting offered by us given that the server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can enhance the performance of your websites with only a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage a handful of websites, you will notice a substantial decrease in the overall server load and a considerably faster webpage loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while as the visitors navigate the web pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you’ll notice the results. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform substantially better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish to speed up any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us when 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 charge, but you’ll also have total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface. It will take only one click of the mouse to start or discontinue an instance or to clear the cache for any website that is using Varnish and if you’re more sophisticated, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for caching purposes, so even if you host an immense number of Internet sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their performance will be apparent. You’ll only have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our servers come with three free IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
