Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Every time a visitor accesses 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish stores in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared hosting plans and you’ll get a rather intuitive interface, which will give you complete control over the data caching platform. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or turn off any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific site. You can also view an exhaustive system log or erase the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you will be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your websites and to have a lot of satisfied website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. If you need more than that, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to add more instances as well, if you want to use the Varnish platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one resource-heavy site or run several different Internet sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of the Varnish platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will give you total control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to clear the cache, to check a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS servers, so if you get a server with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to make the most of the content caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for caching purposes based on the particular configuration that you have selected at signup, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to improve the work of a handful of traffic-hungry sites, so the faster website loading speeds and the reduced load on your server will be discernible. The result may not be distinguishable straight away, as the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that visitors open, but soon after you enable it, you will feel its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS server and to pay less cash to get the exact same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be enabled and administered with ease through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can check a comprehensive log, create or restart an instance, delete the cached files associated with any Internet site and much more. Soon after you set up the Varnish platform for a given domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the webpages browsed by the site visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a substantially faster site performance plus a decreased load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load distribution purposes even if you run an immense number of sites on the server.
