Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Every time a visitor opens any page on a website 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 browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load significantly faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a much faster loading site, which means a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish stores in its memory is updated as well, so the users won’t see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and speed up your sites regardless of the shared website hosting package that you have chosen and you can enable and set up the content caching platform with a few clicks of the mouse through the simple-to-use GUI offered by our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will employ the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got lots of content on a specific site and you receive plenty of visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you simple 1-click controls for disabling or restarting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with any site and for checking comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the website accelerator tool and enhance the loading speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory exclusively for Varnish at no extra cost and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you right away. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of content will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be utilized by several sites. Hepsia will allow you to restart or to terminate any instance, to view the system log for it or to delete the cached data using single-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites which will use it.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server packages at no extra cost, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The only prerequisite is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a couple of clicks. Each package comes with a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple busy websites. Soon after you enable Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your visitors browse, so you’ll notice the substantially faster page loading times and the decreased load on your virtual server very soon. The caching platform will permit you to use a less high-priced VPS, since you won’t require that many resources to sustain the correct operation of your Internet sites even if you have high-demand websites with multiple visitors. Optimum results are accomplished if the sites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish data caching platform can be set up and administered with ease from the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can check an elaborate log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached files for any site and much, much more. Soon after you enable Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will observe a substantially faster website performance in addition to a lowered load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host numerous websites on the server.
