Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based 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 when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open considerably faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors will never see old info.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites under a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add Varnish with a couple of mouse clicks from your Control Panel. The content caching platform is available as an upgrade with all our shared plans and you can select how many websites will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they are not tied directly to each other, so you can choose if you want plenty of memory for a single large site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can take advantage of the full potential of the Varnish caching platform in case the sites use a dedicated IP. With the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/discontinue an instance, clear the cached data individually for each site which employs Varnish or see an elaborate log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included by default with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. In case you need more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same Upgrades section will permit you to activate more instances as well, if you’d like to use the Varnish platform with multiple Internet sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of one single large-scale website or run a number of websites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to clear the cache, to view a log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS

You can use the workload balancing potential of Varnish with each of our Linux VPS packages if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it will be able to use to cache your site content depends upon the particular plan that you’ve selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the work of numerous Internet sites. It will take a little time for you to notice the effects, as Varnish caches the content that visitors browse, but shortly after that you will notice the substantially lowered load on the Virtual Private Server and the increased site loading speed. Varnish will permit you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server plan for sites that would usually need a more high-priced web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll acquire the Varnish data caching platform at no extra fee and you’ll exert complete control over it via an amazingly time and effort saving GUI – you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot an instance, to see a comprehensive log, to clear the cached files for any site and much more. The Varnish caching platform will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you’ve got large-sized websites with a huge number of visitors, you’ll notice the substantially faster site loading times and the lowered load on your dedicated server. This will become a fact soon after you begin using Varnish, since it will require some time to cache the web pages that visitors browse. You can take full advantage of the platform’s capability in case the Internet sites that are using it also use a dedicated IP address, but since your server includes several IPs by default, you won’t need to pay anything on top of your monthly charge for the machine itself.
