Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to 1000%, 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 loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load much faster, as Varnish can serve content many times faster than any server software. The result is a considerably faster loading website, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the visitors won’t end up seeing old data.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting package and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, displays the maximum amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to switch off or to reboot any instance, to check exhaustive system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will load tremendously faster, which means more pleased website visitors and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages include Varnish by default, so you can use the accelerator and optimize the load speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you can activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal instantly. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of data will be cached for one website or whether the available memory will be utilized by several sites. Hepsia will permit you to restart or to discontinue any instance, to see the system log file for it or to delete the cached data using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP address for the websites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting packages, so in case you buy a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to use the data caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for caching purposes based on the very VPS package that you have chosen during the signup process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to optimize the work of several traffic-consuming Internet sites, so the faster website loading speeds and the decreased load on the virtual server will be perceptible. The result may not be detectable instantly, as the Varnish platform will need some time to cache the website content that visitors open, but shortly after you set it up, you will perceive its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to pay less cash to get the exact same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get the Varnish platform at no extra charge and you will exert total control over it via a really time and effort saving graphical interface – you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot an instance, to view a comprehensive log, to clear the cached files associated with any website and much more. The Varnish caching platform will have several GB of memory at its disposal, so even if you own resource-intensive websites with a lot of visitors, you will notice the significantly faster web page load times and the decreased load on your dedicated server. This will become a fact soon after you start using Varnish, as it will require some time to cache the pages that visitors access. You can take full advantage of the platform’s capability if the websites that are using it also use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that your server includes a couple of IPs by default, you won’t need to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the machine itself.
