Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site 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 load significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading site, which leads to an improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing old data.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux shared service. You can add it to your web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you will get a very simple-to-use graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the data caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can restart or remove any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific site. You can also see an exhaustive log or clear the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your websites and to have plenty of satisfied site users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include Varnish by default, so you can make use of the website accelerator and speed up any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of memory dedicated to Varnish at no extra fee and you can create an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you right away. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose whether plenty of data will be cached for one site or if the memory will be used by different Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to reboot or to discontinue any instance, to see the system log file for it or to clear the cached files using 1-click controls. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites which will use it.
Varnish in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our VPS server plans at no extra fee, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The one and only condition is that the Virtual Private Server must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your websites with only a few mouse clicks. Each VPS package comes with a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple regularly visited websites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your site visitors open, so you’ll notice the substantially better web page load times and the decreased load on the virtual machine in no time. Varnish will permit you to use a less pricey Virtual Private Server, since you will not require that much power to warrant the uninterrupted operation of your Internet sites even if you run traffic-heavy sites with multiple visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the sites which use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP address.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that are ordered with the custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish content caching platform can be configured and managed without efforts via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can check an exhaustive log, create or reboot an instance, delete the cached content associated with any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform for a specific domain or subdomain, it will start caching the web pages requested by your site visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you’ll perceive a considerably faster site performance in addition to a decreased load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you host a lot of websites on the server.
