Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as 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%, depending on the content itself. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a site 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load tremendously faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result is a considerably faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated as well, so the users won’t see old info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with a few mouse clicks via your Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered as an upgrade with all our shared hosting packages and you can select the number of the websites that will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be used for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they’re not directly linked to each other, so you can decide if you want plenty of memory for one single large-size site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish platform if the sites use a dedicated IP. Using the Control Panel, you can quickly start/reboot/cancel an instance, delete the cached data independently for each site that employs the Varnish platform or see an in-depth log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is included by default with all semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and you can use it for workload distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the system memory quota. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to add more instances too, if you wish to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of a single large-sized Internet site or use a number of websites with the default memory quota. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. Hepsia will grant you complete control over the platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you’ll be able to delete the cached files, to view a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our VPS web hosting service if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache your website content is dependent on the particular plan that you’ve chosen, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal only for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to enhance the work of multiple Internet sites. It will take some time for you to see the results, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors access, but shortly after that you’ll notice the substantially reduced load on the virtual machine and the enhanced Internet site browsing speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a lower-end VPS plan for Internet sites that would typically need a more pricey hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated service which are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish platform can be enabled and managed without efforts from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than a click, you can see an in-depth system log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached data associated with any site and much more. Shortly after you set up the Varnish platform for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the webpages loaded by the website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a considerably faster site performance in addition to a decreased load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host multiple Internet sites on the server.
