Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can boost the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Anytime 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 browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load significantly faster, since the Varnish 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. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the data that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the users won’t see outdated data.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each web hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you wish to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to stop or to reboot any instance, to check comprehensive system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open substantially faster, meaning more happy website users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish comes as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you’re in need of more, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same Upgrades section will permit you to enable more instances as well, if you’d like to use Varnish with multiple sites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of a single resource-intensive website or use several different Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cached files, to see a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS

The Varnish platform is included by default with all VPS offered by our company given that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the overall performance of your sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you’ve got a handful of websites, you’ll notice a great decrease in the overall server load and a significantly faster webpage loading speed. The Varnish platform will need to work for a while while the users navigate the pages and as soon as the site content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the result. One of the pluses of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less costly plan will accomplish the same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your sites work significantly better, but you will also spare a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish to improve the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional fee, but you will also exert complete control over it through Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface. It’ll take just one click to start or cancel an instance or to clear the cached files for any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more proficient, you can also check the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than 3 GB of memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you host an enormous number of Internet sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be evident. You’ll just need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors load on their end. The platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our dedicated servers come with three free-of-cost IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
