Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can improve the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when 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 load much faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading page, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your websites under a cloud web hosting account with us, you will be able to activate Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our hosting packages and you can select how many websites will use it and the total storage space that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they’re not directly tied to each other, so you can choose whether you want a lot of memory for a single large-scale site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish caching platform in case the sites use a dedicated IP address. With the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/deactivate an instance, delete the cached files independently for each website which employs Varnish or view an in-depth log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we are offering will permit you to use Varnish once your brand-new account has been created, as the content caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this load balancing software once your website has been taken online. If you need more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server in a flash. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you will have more freedom. The Varnish caching platform will greatly decrease the load caused by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without any effort through the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached content for any of your sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is included by default with each of the VPS plans that we’re offering on the condition that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the overall performance of your websites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage a number of websites, you’ll notice a noticeable decrease in the server load and a substantially better site load speed. The platform will need to work for a little while as the users navigate the web pages and once the site content has been cached, you’ll perceive the effect. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced VPS plan will accomplish the very same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work substantially better, but you will also spare a certain amount of money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful web hosting solution and you buy any of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to improve the overall performance of your websites at no additional fee as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate interface will permit you to keep track of system processes, to clear the cache or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of system memory that the caching platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous collection of repeatedly visited websites, so your server will be able to handle a substantial system load while your site visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
