Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can increase the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Each 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 when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The result will be a much faster loading page, which means an enormously improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated as well, so the visitors won’t see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

You can unlock Varnish’s potential and accelerate the loading speed of your sites irrespective of the shared hosting plan that you’ve chosen and you can enable and configure the platform with a couple of clicks via the easy-to-use GUI offered by our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to select two different things – how many sites will employ the Varnish caching platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got plenty of content on a certain website and you draw numerous visitors, more system memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will offer you simple 1-click buttons for cancelling or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for each website and for seeing comprehensive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, as the platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load distribution software as soon as your website has been published to the web. If you need more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you will enjoy more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will greatly decrease the load caused by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage Varnish effortlessly via your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached content associated with any of your websites or to view system logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can employ Varnish to accelerate any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no extra charge, but you’ll also exert complete control over it through Hepsia’s intuitive GUI. It’ll take only one mouse click to start or cancel an instance or to clear the cached data for any website that is using Varnish and if you’re more trained, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of system memory for website content caching purposes, so even in case you host a vast number of Internet sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their performance will be apparent. You will only need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the site visitors access on their end. The platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers include three cost-free IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
