Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, since Varnish can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading page, which leads to an immensely improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual website, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated information.

Varnish in Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and optimize the loading speed of your websites regardless of the hosting package that you have picked and you can activate and set up the content caching platform with several clicks of the mouse through the simple-to-work-with graphical interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will employ Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got lots of content on a particular Internet site and you receive numerous visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy 1-click controls for removing or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache for any website and for seeing comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish caching platform is an essential part of the standard set of services that you’ll receive if you decide to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your Internet sites through our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. Since these two things are not bound to each other, you can use several websites with the default amount of memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single web site. The Varnish platform works best when you assign a dedicated IP address to the Internet sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you an easy way of restarting any instance. In addition, you will be able to clear the cached contents with only a click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with all our VPS servers when you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends upon the specific VPS package that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal only for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to boost the work of multiple Internet sites. It will take a little time for you to notice the effects, since Varnish caches the content that website visitors browse, but soon thereafter you will notice the considerably lowered load on the VPS and the accelerated Internet site load speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end package for sites which would typically require a more high-priced web hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish to enhance the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you’ll also exert total control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with GUI. It will take just one click of the mouse to start or discontinue an instance or to delete the cached data for any website that’s using Varnish and in case you’re more tech-savvy, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you host an immense number of Internet sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be visible. You will just need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our servers include 3 charge-free IPs, you will have all that you need.
