Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending 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 in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, as Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading website, which means an improved browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated as well, so the users will never see outdated content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our Linux shared hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a pretty user-friendly graphical interface, which will give you full control over the content caching system. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific site. You can also check an elaborate system log or erase the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can set a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have many pleased website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is included as standard with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your semi-dedicated account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The same section will enable you to add more instances as well, in case you wish to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of one regularly visited site or run several sites with the default memory. You can get the most out of Varnish in case you have a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated 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 will be able to clear the cached data, to view a log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no extra fee, since the platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole precondition is that the virtual machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Each Virtual Private Server plan offers a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple resource-intensive sites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your visitors access, so you will notice the significantly faster web page loading speeds and the lowered load on the server in no time. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less pricey VPS, as you will not require that much power to sustain the correct operation of your sites even if you have resource-heavy Internet sites with many visitors. Best results are accomplished if the Internet sites that use Varnish also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to optimize the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no additional fee, but you’ll also have total control over it via Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI. It will take only one click of the mouse to start or terminate an instance or to clear the cached data associated with any website that is using Varnish and in case you’re more experienced, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of system memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run a vast number of Internet sites on your server and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be detectable. You will simply need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the website visitors access on their end. The platform works best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers include 3 free IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
