Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Every time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load tremendously faster, since Varnish can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading site, which means an immensely improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the information that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see old info.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and boost the load speed of your websites regardless of the website hosting package that you’ve chosen and you can enable and set up the data caching platform with several mouse clicks using the simple-to-use graphical interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will employ the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you have lots of content on a particular site and you win many site visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple 1-click buttons for deleting or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for any Internet site and for viewing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is included in the standard set of services that you will acquire when you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your Internet sites through our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. The default system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the Internet sites that can use this platform at the same time. As these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a couple of Internet sites with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single web site. The Varnish caching platform performs best when you get a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with a simple way of restarting any instance. Furthermore, you will be able to delete the cached content with just one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with each of our VPS server plans at no additional charge, since the platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The only precondition is that the virtual machine must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks. Each VPS package comes with a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll have minimum several hundred MB, which is quite sufficient even for multiple traffic-heavy Internet sites. Shortly after you activate Varnish, it will start caching the content that your website visitors access, so you’ll notice the tremendously better site load times and the decreased load on the VPS server very soon. Varnish will allow you to use a less pricey server, as you will not require that many resources to warrant the uninterrupted operation of your websites even if you own large websites with many visitors. Optimal results are accomplished if the sites which use Varnish use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you want a more powerful web hosting solution and you get any of the dedicated servers that we offer, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to enhance the performance of your sites at no extra fee on the condition that the dedicated machine is ordered with our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with interface will allow you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast collection of resource-heavy websites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a substantial load while your site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will include several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
