Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Every time a visitor accesses 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. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result is a considerably faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual website, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors will not see old content.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and optimize the loading speed of your sites regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you have selected and you can add and set up the content caching platform with a couple of mouse clicks through the easy-to-use interface offered by our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you’ve got a lot of content on a given site and you attract plenty of visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple 1-click buttons for deleting or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any Internet site and for checking comprehensive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting services include Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator tool and improve the speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 megabytes of memory exclusively for Varnish at no extra fee and you can add an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. If you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you right away. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if lots of content will be cached for a single site or whether the available memory will be used by several Internet sites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to remove any instance, to view the system log file for it or to clear the cached content using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use Varnish with each of our virtual private server packages at no additional fee, since the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole condition is that the server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. Each VPS plan features a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for multiple large-scale websites. Soon after you enable Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your site visitors open, so you will notice the substantially better Internet site loading times and the lowered load on the virtual server very soon. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less pricey Virtual Private Server, as you won’t need that much power to sustain the proper operation of your sites even if you have large-sized Internet sites with plenty of visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the websites that use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a powerful website hosting solution and you get one of the Linux dedicated hosting services that we offer, you can use the Varnish platform to improve the work of your Internet sites at no additional charge on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will allow you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with one single click. The minimal amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an immense selection of heavy Internet sites, so your server will be able to handle an enormous load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
