Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Each time 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 web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open substantially faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a much faster loading page, which means an improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the data that Varnish saves in its memory is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and boost your websites’ speed irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you have selected and you can activate and configure the platform with several mouse clicks through the intuitive interface offered by our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you have lots of content on a specific Internet site and you attract numerous visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple 1-click buttons for shutting down or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for each Internet site and for viewing exhaustive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in your semi-dedicated server account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same Upgrades section will enable you to activate more instances as well, if you want to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single resource-requiring site or use several websites with the default memory allocation. You can get the most out of the Varnish caching platform in case you have a dedicated IP and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over the platform and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to delete the cached content, to check a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our VPS servers when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform is offered by default and the amount of system memory that it will be able to utilize to cache your website content depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have selected, but even with the less powerful packages, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to enhance the performance of multiple Internet sites. It’ll take some time for you to detect the effects, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors browse, but shortly thereafter you will notice the substantially decreased load on your server and the accelerated website loading speed. Varnish will permit you to use a less powerful VPS package for sites that would usually require a more costly hosting solution.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you order one of the Linux dedicated servers offered by us, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to boost the work of your sites at no additional cost as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use GUI will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one single mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a large number of busy Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a tremendous system load while your visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. Since your server will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum potential.
