Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, since Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading site, which means a much-improved visitor experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live site, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your sites under a cloud web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with a couple of clicks via your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our shared hosting packages and you can choose how many websites will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they’re not tied directly to each other, so you can choose if you need plenty of memory for one large website or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of Varnish in case the sites use a dedicated IP address. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can easily start/reboot/shut down an instance, delete the cached content individually for each website that employs Varnish or check a comprehensive log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated hosting service offered by our company and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you need more, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same Upgrades section will permit you to add more instances as well, in case you’d like to use Varnish with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one single traffic-intensive site or use a number of sites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of Varnish in case you use a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click, you will be able to clear the cached data, to check a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting service, so in case you order a VPS with this Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the data caching platform at no extra fee. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes depending on the specific server configuration that you’ve selected during the subscription process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to optimize the overall performance of a handful of resource-heavy sites, so the faster page browsing speeds and the decreased load on your Virtual Private Server will be perceivable. The effect may not be distinguishable momentarily, as the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the website content that visitors access, but shortly after you set it up, you will feel its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are ordered with the custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be configured and administered with no effort through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can view a comprehensive log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached files for any site and much, much more. Shortly after you configure Varnish for a particular domain or subdomain, it will start caching the web pages opened by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a significantly better site performance as well as a reduced load on the server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host a large number of Internet sites on your dedicated server.
