Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based 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 accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved visitor experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the data that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will not end up seeing old data.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your websites under a cloud website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel. The platform is available as an upgrade with all our hosting plans and you can choose the number of the websites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be available for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they’re not linked directly to each other, so you can choose if you need a lot of memory for a single large site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish platform if the sites use a dedicated IP address. With the hosting Control Panel, you can easily start/restart/cancel an instance, clear the cached contents independently for each site which employs the Varnish platform or view an elaborate log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us will permit you to use Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated server account has been created, since the caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software once your site has been launched online. In case you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you will have more versatility. The Varnish platform will considerably decrease the server load that your websites produce, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without any effort through your Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/discontinue any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached files associated with any of your Internet sites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS hosting in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites is dependent upon the given VPS package that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to improve the work of multiple sites. It’ll take some time for you to detect the results, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors request, but after that you will notice the considerably less load on your VPS and the improved site loading speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for websites which would normally require a more high-priced web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish caching platform can be set up and administered without any effort through Hepsia’s intuitive GUI and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can see an in-depth system log, create or restart an instance, delete the cached data associated with any site and much more. Soon after you configure the Varnish platform for a certain domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages opened by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will perceive a significantly better site performance in addition to a lowered load on the dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you host multiple websites on the dedicated machine.
