Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Every 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 if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading website, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites under a shared web hosting account with our company, you will be able to activate Varnish with several mouse clicks through your hosting Control Panel. The content caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared packages and you can select the number of the websites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two features that can be upgraded in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they’re not linked directly to each other, so you can choose whether you want lots of memory for a single large website or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unleash the full potential of the Varnish platform if the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the hosting Control Panel, you can easily start/restart/delete an instance, clear the cached files individually for each site that employs the Varnish platform or check a detailed log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting packages include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web application accelerator tool and accelerate the speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra cost and you will be able to add an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of data will be cached for a single website or if the memory will be utilized by different sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to deactivate any instance, to view the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached content using 1-click controls. To get the most out of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites that will use it.

Varnish in VPS

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS, so if you acquire a server with this Control Panel, you will be able to make full use of the caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes depending on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you have selected during the registration process, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to improve the overall performance of several different large Internet sites, so the faster page load speeds and the lowered load on the machine will be perceptible. The result may not be obvious momentarily, as Varnish will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that people access, but shortly after you activate it, you will witness its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS and to pay less money to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a powerful web hosting solution and you order one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional fee as long as the server is ordered with our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. Its intuitive graphical interface will enable you to keep track of system processes, to delete the cached files or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for an immense collection of large-size sites, so your server will be able to deal with a massive system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated server will include several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
