Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. 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 if the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, as Varnish can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading website, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the users will not see out-of-date information.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our cloud website hosting service. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get an amazingly user-friendly GUI, which will give you full control over the content caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or discontinue any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a specific website. You can also view a detailed log or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have numerous pleased site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web app accelerator tool and accelerate the speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 MB of memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you can add an instance with no more than a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated packages. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantaneously. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of data will be cached for one website or if the available memory will be utilized by multiple websites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to disable any instance, to view the system log file for it or to clear the cached content using single-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped VPS servers, so in case you purchase a server with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the content caching platform at no extra cost. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes depending on the particular package that you have chosen on the order form, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to enhance the work of several busy sites, so the faster page load speeds and the reduced load on the virtual machine will be perceptible. The effect may not be detectable immediately, since Varnish will require some time to cache the content that people browse, but soon after you enable it, you will feel its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a lower-end server and to pay less money to get the very same performance you would get with a higher-end machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll obtain the Varnish content caching platform at no extra cost and you will have complete control over it via an extremely simple-to-navigate graphical interface – you’ll be able to start, to remove or to reboot an instance, to view a detailed system log, to clear the cached content for any website and much more. Varnish will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you run traffic-heavy sites with a large number of visitors, you’ll notice the substantially faster website loading speeds and the less load on your dedicated machine. This will happen soon after you begin using Varnish, as it will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that users request. You can take full advantage of the platform’s capabilities if the websites that are using it also use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that your dedicated server includes a few IPs by default, you won’t have to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the server itself.
