Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator that can improve the load speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Each time a visitor opens 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading website, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors will not end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and increase the speed of your websites irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you have chosen and you can add and set up the content caching platform with several clicks via the intuitive interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you have a lot of content on a given website and you gain many site visitors, more system memory will guarantee you better results. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will provide you with easy one-click buttons for turning off or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for any site and for viewing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish comes by default with all semi-dedicated service that we’re offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated server account. If you need more than that, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same section will allow you to create more instances as well, in case you want to use Varnish with more sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-absorbing Internet site or run a number of sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. Hepsia will grant you total control over the caching platform and, with no more than one click, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents, to see a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed VPS hosting service, so if you get a server with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to make full use of the data caching platform at no extra charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes depending on the specific VPS plan that you have chosen during the signup process, but nevertheless, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to optimize the performance of a number of traffic-heavy websites, so the faster site load speeds and the decreased load on the Virtual Private Server will be noticeable. The result may not be visible straight away, since the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the content that visitors browse, but shortly after you activate it, you’ll observe its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a lower-end server and to give less money to get the exact same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated service which are ordered with the custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be enabled and administered effortlessly from the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view an in-depth system log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached data for any website and much, much more. Shortly after you configure Varnish for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages browsed by your visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will observe a tremendously better site performance as well as a decreased server load. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host many websites on your dedicated machine.
