Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Every 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 when the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a much faster loading site, which means a much-improved browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux web hosting package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you would like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface will allow you to shut down or to reboot any instance, to view detailed system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied website visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish caching platform is an essential part of the default service set that you will acquire in case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can enable it for any of your websites through our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two features aren’t linked to each other, you can use a couple of sites 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 website. Varnish works best if you use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you an easy way of restarting any instance. In addition, you’ll be able to clear the cached contents with just a click.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

Varnish comes by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting packages offered by our company given that the machine is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your websites with only a few mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several different Internet sites, you’ll notice a serious decrease in the overall server load and a much faster website loading speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a while as the users browse the site and as soon as the website content has been cached, you will perceive the results. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less pricey package will accomplish the exact same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to enhance the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you’ll also exert complete control over it via Hepsia’s intuitive interface. It will take just one single click of the mouse to start or remove an instance or to delete the cache for any website that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more trained, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of system memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you host a lot of sites on your server and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their performance will be evident. You’ll just need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors open on their end. The platform works best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers include 3 charge-free IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
