Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can increase the speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Every time a visitor accesses 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 loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open much faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading page, which means an improved browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the website visitors will not see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux website hosting package and if you want to use it, you can add it to your account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface will permit you to delete or to restart any instance, to check detailed system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load much faster, meaning more happy site users and prospective clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your brand-new semi-dedicated account has been created, as the content caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software as soon as your website has been launched. In case you need more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server momentarily. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you will have more flexibility. The caching platform will significantly lower the load on the server that your websites produce, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform without efforts via your Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached content associated with any of your sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform comes by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting packages offered by us given that the machine is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the work of your websites with just a few clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a lower-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you have several different sites, you’ll notice a considerable decrease in the server load and a tremendously better web page loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while while the visitors browse the pages and once the site content has been cached, you’ll observe the effect. One of the upsides of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less high-priced Virtual Private Server package will do the same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your websites work better, but you’ll also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be activated and administered with ease from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can see an in-depth log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cache for any site and much, much more. Soon after you configure Varnish for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the web pages loaded by your visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you will witness a significantly better site performance as well as a decreased load on the server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host plenty of Internet sites on the dedicated server.
