Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Each 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load much faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s full potential and increase your websites’ speed regardless of the cloud hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can add and configure the data caching platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the user-friendly graphical interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will employ the Varnish caching platform, i.e. 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 tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you have lots of content on a specific site and you attract a lot of website visitors, more system memory will give you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will offer you easy 1-click controls for deleting or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for each Internet site and for viewing in-depth logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand new account has been created, since the content caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload distribution software once your site has been published to the web. If you need more system memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine 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 tied to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more flexibility. The platform will considerably lower the load on the machine that your sites generate, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without any effort through the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to clear the cached content for any of your sites or to see system log files.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting packages, so in case you buy a server with this web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the data caching platform at no extra charge. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for caching purposes depending on the specific plan that you have selected during the signup procedure, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the work of several resource-absorbing websites, so the faster web page load speeds and the decreased load on your virtual server will be discernible. The result may not be detectable momentarily, since the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the content that people open, but soon after you set it up, you will witness its full capacity. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS server and to give less cash to get the exact same performance you would get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be configured and managed without efforts via Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can view a detailed log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached files associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the webpages opened by the visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will perceive a substantially better website performance in addition to a decreased load on the machine. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for load distribution purposes even if you run a lot of websites on the machine.
