Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can increase the speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Every time a visitor opens 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 handled by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading website, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the content that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors will never see old info.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our web hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you’ll get an exceptionally simple-to-use graphical interface, which will give you full control over the content caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or deactivate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a given website. You can also view an exhaustive system log or delete the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your websites and to have plenty of gratified visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated packages that we are offering will allow you to employ Varnish once your new account is active, as the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload balancing software once your site has been launched online. In case you’re in need of more system memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. 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 goes to say that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will greatly decrease the load on the machine produced by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without effort from your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached data for any of your sites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped VPS web hosting packages, so if you order a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to use the caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for caching purposes based on the very VPS plan that you have selected during the signup procedure, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to optimize the performance of several resource-intensive Internet sites, so the faster website load speeds and the decreased load will be perceivable. The effect may not be distinguishable right away, as the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the website content that people request, but shortly after you enable it, you will feel its full capacity. This platform will allow you to use a less powerful VPS and to pay less money to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll get the Varnish content caching platform at no additional fee and you will exert total control over it through a pretty time and effort saving graphical interface – you’ll be able to start, to remove or to reboot an instance, to check an exhaustive system log, to delete the cached files associated with any website and much more. The Varnish caching platform will have several gigabytes of system memory at its disposal, so even if you manage traffic-hungry websites with many visitors, you will notice the tremendously better website loading times and the decreased load on your server. This will happen soon after you begin using the Varnish platform, as it will require a certain amount of time to cache the pages that users browse. You can take full advantage of the platform’s capability in case the Internet sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP, but considering the fact that your dedicated server includes several IP addresses by default, you will not need to pay anything on top of the monthly charge for the server itself.
