Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Anytime 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. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading website, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the content that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated as well, so the visitors won’t see outdated data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and boost the speed of your sites irrespective of the shared web hosting package that you have selected and you can activate and configure the data caching platform with several mouse clicks through the simple-to-use graphical interface offered by our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many Internet sites will employ the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got a lot of content on a specific site and you get a lot of visitors, more memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you simple one-click controls for deleting or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache for each Internet site and for viewing in-depth system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated services include Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the web accelerator and increase the load speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you will be able to add an instance with no more than a few clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you straight away. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if lots of data will be cached for a single site or if the available memory will be used by multiple websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to reboot or to discontinue any instance, to view the system log for it or to clear the cached content using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites that will employ it.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from us when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra cost, but you’ll also exert complete control over it through Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface. It’ll take just one single click to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached data associated with any site that is using Varnish and in case you are more sophisticated, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of system memory for content caching purposes, so even if you host numerous Internet sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be obvious. You will simply need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever content the visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the sites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our servers come with 3 free-of-charge IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
