Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator that can boost the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Every 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 if 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 open significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which leads to a much-improved browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the data that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors will not see old information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting packages and you will get an amazingly intuitive graphical interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching system. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can restart or deactivate any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a certain site. You can also see an exhaustive system log file or clear the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have a lot of pleased site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish once your new semi-dedicated account has been opened, as the caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software once you launch your site. If you’re in need of more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server immediately. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more freedom. The Varnish caching platform will immensely reduce the load on the semi-dedicated server produced by your websites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without effort through the Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached data for any of your websites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our VPS servers if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform is offered by default and the memory that it will be able to use to cache your site content depends upon the particular VPS plan that you have picked, but even with the less powerful plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal exclusively for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the work of multiple sites. It will take some time for you to notice the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors request, but after that you’ll notice the considerably decreased load on the server and the accelerated Internet site browsing speed. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS package for websites which would typically need a more high-priced hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the server. The Varnish caching platform can be activated and administered with no effort through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can check a detailed system log, add or restart an instance, clear the cached content for any site and much, much more. Soon after you enable Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the webpages loaded by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will observe a considerably better website performance plus a reduced server load. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you host multiple sites on your dedicated machine.
