Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can increase the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open much faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

In case you host your websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting plans and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the total storage space that will be available for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they are not directly linked to each other, so you can decide whether you need a lot of memory for a single large site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unleash the full potential of the Varnish platform if the sites use a dedicated IP address. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can easily start/restart/shut down an instance, delete the cached contents individually for each site which uses the Varnish platform or see a comprehensive system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by us will allow you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new semi-dedicated server account has been activated, since the caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this workload distribution software once your website has been taken online. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server immediately. 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 suggests that you will enjoy more freedom. The Varnish platform will enormously reduce the server load that your websites produce, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with no effort through your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache for any of your sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS plans, so in case you buy a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to make use of the caching platform at no extra charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for caching purposes based on the very plan that you’ve selected during the signup procedure, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to boost the performance of several frequently visited sites, so the faster web page loading speeds and the less load on the VPS will be perceivable. The effect may not be distinguishable straight away, as Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that people browse, but soon after you set it up, you’ll perceive its full potential. This platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS server and to give less cash to get the same performance you’d get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want a more powerful web hosting solution and you purchase one of the dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company, you’ll be able to use Varnish to optimize the overall performance of your sites at no additional cost as long as the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate GUI will permit you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached contents or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large number of resource-consuming websites, so your server will be able to cope with a substantial system load while your Internet site visitors are having a smooth web browsing experience. As your machine will include several different dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to use Varnish’s full capacity.
