Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Every time 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 loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the content that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors won’t see old content.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud web hosting packages. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you’ll get a quite simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access controls, you can restart or terminate any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a given Internet site. You can also see a comprehensive log or clear the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have lots of pleased website visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the web accelerator and accelerate the speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you instantly. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether a lot of data will be cached for a single website or whether the available memory will be used by different Internet sites. Hepsia will permit you to reboot or to disable any instance, to view the system log associated with it or to delete the cached content using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the websites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS

Varnish is included by default with all Linux VPS packages offered by us as long as the VPS server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the work of your websites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you own a handful of Internet sites, you’ll notice a serious reduction in the server load and a substantially better page loading speed. The platform will have to work for a little while while the visitors browse the web pages and once the website content has been cached, you’ll notice the result. One of the upsides of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive VPS plan will do the very same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform much better, but you will also spare some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you need the most powerful web hosting solution and you order any of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we are offering, you will be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to improve the work of your sites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-use graphical interface will allow you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with a click. The minimal amount of system memory that the caching platform can employ to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous selection of large sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with an immense system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a seamless browsing experience. As your machine will include several different dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
