Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. 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 opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated too, so the website visitors won’t end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and accelerate the load speed of your websites irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you have selected and you can add and configure the data caching platform with several clicks via the easy-to-use graphical interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you have plenty of content on a given Internet site and you receive plenty of visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you easy 1-click controls for deactivating or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for any Internet site and for seeing exhaustive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers offered by us will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account is active, as the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can use this load balancing software as soon as your site has been launched online. If you are in need of more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The Varnish platform will seriously reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine generated by your sites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with ease via the Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached data associated with any of your Internet sites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with all our VPS server packages at no extra fee, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The only condition is that the VPS server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with only a couple of clicks. Each package features a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get at least several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple traffic-heavy sites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your site visitors browse, so you will notice the much faster Internet site load times and the less load on your server very soon. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less high-priced server, as you will not require that many resources to warrant the proper operation of your sites even if you have resource-hungry websites with a lot of visitors. Best results are achieved if the sites which use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish caching platform can be set up and managed with ease from Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view an exhaustive system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cache for any Internet site and much, much more. Soon after you configure Varnish for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages browsed by the website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll witness a considerably better site performance plus a reduced load on the server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you host a large number of Internet sites on your dedicated server.
