Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Every time a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a much faster loading site, which means an immensely improved visitor experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the data that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will not see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our shared hosting plans and you can choose the number of the websites that will use it and the maximum storage space that will be used for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they aren’t linked directly to each other, so you can decide if you want lots of memory for one single large-scale website or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish platform if the sites use a dedicated IP address. With the Control Panel, you can quickly start/restart/cancel an instance, delete the cached files individually for each website that uses Varnish or view an exhaustive system log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the accelerator and improve the loading speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for Varnish at no additional cost and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether lots of content will be cached for a single site or if the memory will be utilized by several websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to restart or to delete any instance, to check the system log file associated with it or to clear the cached content using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting services, so in case you purchase a server with this hosting Control Panel, you will be able to make use of the caching platform at no additional cost. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for content caching purposes depending on the very VPS plan that you have picked during the signup procedure, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is more than enough to optimize the work of a handful of regularly visited sites, so the better page loading speeds and the less load on your Virtual Private Server will be noticeable. The effect may not be detectable immediately, as the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the website content that users access, but shortly after you activate it, you will feel its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS server and to give less cash to get the exact same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can employ Varnish to improve the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you’ll also have total control over it via Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface. It’ll take only one single click to start or remove an instance or to delete the cached content for any website that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more advanced, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of system memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you host lots of websites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their performance will be noticeable. You will only need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors access on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers come with 3 charge-free IPs, you will have everything you need.
