Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the load speed of a website by up to 1000%, depending on its content. 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 browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading page, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date content.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our cloud web hosting plans. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a truly intuitive GUI, which will give you full control over the data caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can restart or discontinue any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a given website. You can also view a comprehensive log or clear the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for caching purposes and how many websites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for maximum performance, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your sites and to have many gratified website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is part of the basic set of services that you will obtain when you choose to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your websites via our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two things aren’t linked 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 MB and use all of it for a single web site. The Varnish caching platform works best when you set a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you an easy means of restarting any instance. On top of that, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with just one click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our VPS web hosting plans if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the memory that it will be able to utilize to cache the content of your websites depends upon the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the overall performance of numerous sites. It will take a little time for you to observe the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors access, but shortly after that you’ll notice the substantially lowered load on your Virtual Private Server and the enhanced website loading speed. Varnish will permit you to make use of a lower-end Virtual Private Server package for websites which would typically require a more costly hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be activated and managed without any effort via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface and, with no more than one click, you can browse an elaborate system log, create or reboot an instance, clear the cached data for any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you set up Varnish for a particular domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the webpages opened by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will observe a tremendously faster website performance as well as a lowered load on the dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host a huge number of Internet sites on the dedicated machine.
