Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Whenever a visitor opens 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. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a much faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the data that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing out-of-date data.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each shared website hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, displays the total amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface will enable you to discontinue or to restart any instance, to check exhaustive logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, which means more happy website visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which comes by default with all semi-dedicated servers offered by us and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. If you need more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same section will allow you to enable more instances as well, in case you’d like to use the Varnish platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of one regularly visited Internet site or use several different websites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will give you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents, to see a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with all our VPS server packages at no extra fee, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole condition is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a few clicks. Each VPS plan features a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will have minimum several hundred MB, which is sufficient even for multiple resource-demanding websites. Shortly after you activate Varnish, it will start caching the content that your website visitors open, so you’ll notice the tremendously faster webpage load times and the decreased server load very soon. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less high-priced virtual machine, since you will not require that much power to warrant the uninterrupted operation of your sites even if you have busy websites with numerous visitors. Maximum results are accomplished if the Internet sites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish content caching platform can be activated and administered without efforts through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can see a detailed system log, create or restart an instance, delete the cache associated with any website and much more. Soon after you enable Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages browsed by your website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a tremendously better site performance as well as a reduced load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host lots of Internet sites on your machine.
