Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on its content. Anytime 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open substantially faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading website, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the info that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see old info.

Varnish in Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and enhance your sites’ load speed irrespective of the hosting package that you’ve picked and you can activate and configure the data caching platform with a few clicks of the mouse from the user-friendly graphical interface offered by our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many websites will employ the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you have lots of content on a certain Internet site and you draw lots of site visitors, more memory will give you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will provide you with simple 1-click controls for deactivating or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for each site and for viewing exhaustive system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new account is active, as the platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can use this workload balancing software once your website has been launched. If you are in need of more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server in an instant. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you will have more flexibility. The Varnish caching platform will enormously reduce the load on the machine that your websites cause, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/delete any of the instances that you have, to delete the cache associated with any of your sites or to view system log files.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting packages offered by our company on the condition that the virtual machine is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can boost the work of your sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you own a handful of Internet sites, you’ll notice a significant decrease in the overall server load and a considerably better website loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a little while as the visitors navigate the website and as soon as the content has been cached, you’ll notice the result. One of the benefits of employing Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive plan will accomplish the very same job as a more expensive one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform significantly better, but you’ll also spare some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you want the most powerful website hosting solution and you order any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the Varnish platform to enhance the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional charge on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use interface will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached files or to restart any instance with one single click of the mouse.

Since your dedicated machine will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
