Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Anytime 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 loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a significantly faster loading page, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the users won’t end up seeing out-of-date content.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s potential and optimize your sites’ speed regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you have picked and you can enable and set up the content caching platform with several clicks of the mouse from the user-friendly graphical interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got lots of content on a certain Internet site and you get plenty of site visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will provide you with simple one-click buttons for terminating or restarting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any site and for viewing detailed logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web application accelerator and accelerate the loading speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra cost and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal right away. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of data will be cached for a single site or if the available memory will be utilized by different Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to restart or to terminate any instance, to see the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached content using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our VPS service when you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your websites depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to boost the work of numerous websites. It’ll take some time for you to distinguish the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that site visitors open, but soon after that you will notice the substantially decreased load on your server and the enhanced Internet site load speed. Varnish will permit you to make use of a less powerful VPS package for websites which would normally need a more costly web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need the most powerful hosting solution and you order any of the Linux dedicated service that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost as long as the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with GUI will permit you to monitor system processes, to delete the cached contents or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The smallest amount of memory that the platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a vast number of traffic-intensive Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a substantial load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your server will come with several dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
