Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on its content. Every time a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, since the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to a much-improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors won’t end up seeing outdated info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can unlock Varnish’s full potential and increase your sites’ loading speed regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you have selected and you can add and configure the data caching platform with several clicks through the simple-to-use GUI offered by our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will employ the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you’ve got a lot of content on a particular Internet site and you gain plenty of website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you simple 1-click controls for terminating or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache for each Internet site and for viewing detailed system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web application accelerator and boost the loading speed of any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you can enable an instance with no more than a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. If 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 immediately. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if a lot of content will be cached for one site or whether the available memory will be used by several websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to discontinue any instance, to see the system log file for it or to clear the cached data using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use Varnish with all our virtual private server packages at no additional fee, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The only precondition is that the VPS server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with just a few mouse clicks. Each VPS plan includes a different amount of system memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is enough even for multiple traffic-intensive sites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your site visitors request, so you’ll notice the significantly better website loading times and the decreased load on the VPS server in no time. The platform will permit you to use a less costly VPS, as you won’t require that much power to sustain the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you manage resource-heavy sites with multiple visitors. Best results are accomplished if the Internet sites that use the Varnish platform use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you will also have full control over it through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface. It will take just one single click of the mouse to start or deactivate an instance or to delete the cached files associated with any site that’s using the Varnish platform and if you’re more trained, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of system memory for web content caching purposes, so even if you run many Internet sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be detectable. You will just need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever content the website visitors load on their end. The platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers include 3 free-of-charge IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
