Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Each 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 when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, since Varnish can serve information many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading website, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish stores in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will not see out-of-date information.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the maximum amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface will allow you to delete or to restart any instance, to view elaborate system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load substantially faster, meaning more happy users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is offered as standard with all semi-dedicated servers offered by us and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you need more, you can increase the memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The very same Upgrades section will allow you to enable more instances too, in case you want to use the Varnish platform with more Internet sites. The two things can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single resource-demanding site or use a number of Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform if you’ve got a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to delete the cached content, to check a log or to restart an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with any of our VPS server packages at no additional fee, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The one and only requirement is that the VPS must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. Each plan comes with a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient enough even for several busy sites. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your website visitors request, so you’ll notice the substantially better webpage load speeds and the lowered load on the VPS in no time. Varnish will permit you to use a less high-priced virtual machine, as you won’t need that much power to warrant the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you have traffic-heavy websites with many visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the sites that use Varnish also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are ordered with the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated server. The Varnish platform can be configured and managed with no effort through Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with interface and, with no more than one single click, you can check an exhaustive system log, create or reboot an instance, delete the cached files for any website and much, much more. Shortly after you configure the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the web pages accessed by your site visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will observe a substantially faster site performance and a decreased load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you run a lot of Internet sites on the server.
