Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. 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 in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the content that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the users will not end up seeing out-of-date information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our cloud hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting packages and you will get a quite simple-to-work-with interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific Internet site. You can also check an elaborate system log file or erase the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose 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 order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimal performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your websites and to have lots of satisfied visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you are in need of more, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to enable more instances too, if you want to use the Varnish caching platform with more Internet sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-demanding Internet site or run several sites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you use a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated package as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached data, to see a log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS

You can use Varnish with all our virtual private server plans at no additional charge, since the platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole precondition is that the VPS server must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each package comes with a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several traffic-consuming websites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your visitors access, so you will notice the much faster page loading speeds and the reduced load on your Virtual Private Server very soon. The platform will permit you to use a less high-priced virtual machine, as you won’t need that much power to warrant the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you have resource-intensive sites with lots of visitors. Maximum results are achieved if the sites which use the Varnish platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll obtain the Varnish data caching platform at no extra charge and you’ll exert complete control over it through a pretty simple-to-navigate interface – you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart an instance, to view a detailed system log, to clear the cached files for any site and much more. Varnish will have several gigabytes of virtual memory at its disposal, so even if you’ve got resource-demanding websites with multiple visitors, you will notice the substantially faster web page load speeds and the less load on the dedicated machine. This will happen shortly after you begin using Varnish, since it will require a certain amount of time to cache the pages that users open. You can get the most out of the platform’s potential if the Internet sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that your server comes with a few IP addresses by default, you won’t have to pay anything on top of your monthly fee for the server itself.
