Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a website by up to 1000%, depending on the content itself. Each 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 opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open much faster, since Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result is a considerably faster loading page, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the information that Varnish caches in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date information.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, displays the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface will allow you to deactivate or to reboot any instance, to see detailed system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load considerably faster, meaning more satisfied visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish caching platform is part of the basic set of services that you’ll receive when you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your sites through our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this platform simultaneously. As these two features aren’t linked to each other, you can use a few websites with the default amount of memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single web site. The Varnish caching platform performs best when you get a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with an easy way of restarting any instance. Also, you’ll be able to delete the cached content with just a click.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish caching platform is included by default with all Linux VPS that we’re offering given that the server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have a number of sites, you’ll notice a considerable reduction in the overall server load and a substantially faster web page load speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while as the users navigate the site and as soon as the content has been cached, you will see the effect. One of the pluses of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced VPS plan will do the exact same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform better, but you’ll also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you want a powerful web hosting solution and you obtain any of the dedicated hosting services that we are offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to boost the performance of your Internet sites at no extra fee on the condition that the server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly GUI will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cache or to reboot any instance with one single mouse click. The smallest amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache Internet site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for an enormous number of large-sized sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a gigantic system load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
