Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Each 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 handled by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, as the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The result is a considerably faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors will not end up seeing outdated info.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, indicates the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s intuitive GUI will enable you to remove or to restart any instance, to check detailed logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open much faster, which means more satisfied users and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is a feature, which is included by default with all semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in the account. If you need more, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same section will enable you to create more instances as well, in case you want to use Varnish with more websites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of one resource-consuming Internet site or use a number of sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to delete the cached data, to view a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS hosting, so in case you buy a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to use the caching platform at no extra charge. Varnish can use different amounts of system memory for data caching purposes depending on the particular plan that you’ve selected during the subscription process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the performance of several different resource-heavy sites, so the faster site browsing speeds and the less load on your VPS will be perceivable. The effect may not be visible right away, as the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the site content that visitors request, but shortly after you set it up, you’ll observe its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS and to pay less money to get the very same performance you’d get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get Varnish at no additional fee and you will have complete control over it via an exceptionally easy-to-work-with interface – you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot an instance, to see an exhaustive log, to delete the cached files for any website and much, much more. The Varnish caching platform will have several gigabytes of virtual memory at its disposal, so even if you own resource-swallowing Internet sites with plenty of visitors, you will notice the substantially faster website load times and the less load on your server. This will happen soon after you start using the Varnish platform, as it will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that users browse. You can make the most of the platform’s capability in case the websites that are using it use also a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that your server includes several IPs by default, you won’t need to pay anything on top of your monthly charge for the machine itself.
