Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a website 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since Varnish can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual site, the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our shared plans. You can add it to your web hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages and you’ll get an exceptionally easy-to-work-with GUI, which will grant you full control over the caching system. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can restart or stop any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a given site. You can also see an elaborate system log file or delete the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have numerous pleased site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is part of the default service set that you’ll obtain when you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your websites via our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this platform at the same time. Since these two things are not tied to each other, you can use a couple of sites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish caching platform performs best if you allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple way of rebooting any instance. What’s more, you’ll be able to clear the cached files with only one mouse click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our VPS web hosting plans when you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your website content is dependent on the specific plan that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal only for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the performance of multiple sites. It’ll take a little time for you to see the results, since Varnish caches the content that site visitors open, but after that you’ll notice the significantly reduced load on the virtual server and the accelerated Internet site loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to make use of a less powerful package for sites which would typically require a more costly web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you purchase one of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to boost the performance of your sites at no additional fee on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly interface will enable you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cache or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimal amount of memory that Varnish can employ to cache website content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large selection of large-sized Internet sites, so your server will be able to handle an enormous system load while your website visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your machine will come with several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
