Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can increase the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. 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 when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading website, which leads to a greatly improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will not see old info.

Varnish in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse via your Control Panel. The content caching platform is available as an optional upgrade with all our shared plans and you can select how many websites will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they aren’t directly tied to each other, so you can choose if you want plenty of memory for one single large-sized site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can take advantage of the full potential of the Varnish caching platform in case the sites use a dedicated IP address. With the hosting Control Panel, you can quickly start/restart/stop an instance, clear the cached files individually for each site that uses the Varnish platform or view a detailed log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering will permit you to use Varnish once your new semi-dedicated server account is active, since the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software once your site has been taken online. In case you need more memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more freedom. The Varnish caching platform will substantially decrease the load generated by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage Varnish without efforts via your Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You will be able to start/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached data associated with any of your websites or to check system logs.

Varnish in VPS

You can take advantage of Varnish with all our virtual private server packages at no additional cost, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The one and only prerequisite is that the VPS server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a few clicks of the mouse. Each package features a different amount of memory for content caching purposes, but you’ll have minimum several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for several large sites. Shortly after you set up Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your website visitors open, so you’ll notice the much better webpage loading times and the reduced load on your VPS server in no time. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less high-priced virtual machine, since you will not require that much power to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you manage high-demand Internet sites with numerous visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the Internet sites that use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you need a powerful hosting solution and you buy any of the Linux dedicated hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the overall performance of your websites at no additional charge on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly interface will permit you to monitor system processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click. The minimal amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge number of heavy websites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a substantial load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your machine will include several dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
