Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, as Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a much faster loading page, which means an improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the information that Varnish stores in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will not see outdated data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our shared web hosting. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages and you’ll get a truly user-friendly GUI, which will give you complete control over the caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or delete any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a certain site. You can also view a detailed log or clear the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you will be able to select the total amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for maximum performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have a lot of gratified website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Varnish by default, so you can use the website accelerator and improve the load speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 megabytes of system memory dedicated to Varnish at no extra charge and you can create an instance with no more than a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of content will be cached for a single website or if the available memory will be utilized by several Internet sites. Hepsia will permit you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to delete the cached data using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish platform is included by default with each of the VPS servers offered by our company as long as the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the overall performance of your sites with just a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you have several sites, you will notice an immense decrease in the server load and a much faster page load speed. The platform will have to work for a little while while the visitors navigate the site and once the content has been cached, you will see the effects. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive VPS package will do the exact same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform better, but you’ll also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful website hosting solution and you buy one of the dedicated servers offered by us, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to boost the overall performance of your websites at no additional cost on the condition that the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will enable you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cached files or to restart any instance with one single click of the mouse. The smallest amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a huge selection of frequently visited websites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a huge load while your website visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
