Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can increase the loading speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on its content. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading page, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors will never see old data.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that you would like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of content that the platform can store at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with interface will allow you to switch off or to restart any instance, to check exhaustive system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, which means more pleased website visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is an essential part of the default service set that you will acquire in case you choose to host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your Internet sites through our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. The default system memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the Internet sites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two things are not linked to each other, you can use a few websites with the default amount of memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single site. The Varnish caching platform performs best when you assign a dedicated IP to the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you a simple way of rebooting any instance. In addition, you will be able to delete the cached data with just one mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS web hosting when you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache your website content is dependent on the particular plan that you have selected, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to optimize the performance of multiple sites. It’ll take a little time for you to distinguish the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors browse, but soon after that you will notice the significantly lowered load on your virtual server and the improved Internet site browsing speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a less powerful VPS plan for sites which would typically require a more pricey hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll acquire Varnish at no additional fee and you’ll exert full control over it through a quite simple-to-work-with GUI – you will be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot an instance, to browse an elaborate log, to delete the cached files associated with any Internet site and much more. Varnish will have several GB of system memory at its disposal, so even if you host high-demand sites with an enormous number of visitors, you will notice the considerably better site load speeds and the less load on the dedicated server. This will happen shortly after you begin using the Varnish platform, since it will require some time to cache the website content that users browse. You can get the most out of the platform’s capability if the sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that your dedicated server comes with a few IPs by default, you will not need to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the server itself.
