Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Every time a visitor accesses any page on a site 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 web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load much faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading website, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the information that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the website visitors will not see outdated data.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and optimize the speed of your websites regardless of the website hosting package that you have selected and you can enable and set up the content caching platform with a few clicks from the easy-to-use GUI offered by our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got plenty of content on a particular website and you attract plenty of website visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy one-click buttons for shutting down or restarting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with each site and for seeing detailed logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting that we offer will permit you to use Varnish once your new semi-dedicated account has been created, since the platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can use this load distribution software once your website has been taken online. In case you need more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server in an instant. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more versatility. The caching platform will seriously decrease the load on the machine produced by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage Varnish with ease via the Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/stop any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached content associated with any of your Internet sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server packages at no extra fee, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The sole prerequisite is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a couple of clicks. Each package offers a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is enough even for multiple resource-requiring websites. Soon after you set up the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your website visitors access, so you will notice the much better Internet site load speeds and the reduced load on your virtual server very soon. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less high-priced server, since you won’t need that much power to ensure the correct operation of your websites even if you manage high-demand Internet sites with plenty of visitors. Optimum results are accomplished if the websites that use Varnish use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish content caching platform can be set up and managed effortlessly through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI and, with no more than one click, you can browse a comprehensive system log, create or restart an instance, delete the cached files associated with any website and much, much more. Shortly after you configure Varnish for a particular domain or subdomain, it will start caching the webpages browsed by the site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a considerably faster site performance and a lowered load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you run many websites on the dedicated machine.
