Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open substantially faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading site, which leads to an enormously improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the content that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to discontinue or to restart any instance, to check comprehensive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open tremendously faster, which means more satisfied site visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering will allow you to use Varnish once your brand new account has been created, since the caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this workload distribution software as soon as your website has been published to the web. If you are in need of more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine right away. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The Varnish platform will considerably lower the load that your sites generate, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without effort via your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache associated with any of your websites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is included by default with all Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company on the condition that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can boost the 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 less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you manage a number of sites, you will notice a substantial reduction in the overall server load and a substantially faster page load speed. The platform will have to work for a little while while the users navigate the website and once the site content has been cached, you will perceive the effects. One of the pros of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly VPS package will do the exact same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform significantly better, but you will also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be set up and administered without efforts from the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can view an exhaustive log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached data associated with any website and much, much more. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the pages accessed by the visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you’ll observe a significantly faster site performance in addition to a decreased load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run a large number of websites on your machine.
