Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can improve the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. 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 in case the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load much faster, since Varnish can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading site, which means a greatly improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the data that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s potential and boost the loading speed of your websites regardless of the shared hosting package that you have selected and you can enable and set up the data caching platform with a couple of mouse clicks from the simple-to-use GUI offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to select two separate things – how many websites will employ the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got plenty of content on a specific Internet site and you win plenty of website visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will offer you simple one-click controls for turning off or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache associated with each website and for viewing comprehensive logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator and increase the speed of any website that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no additional fee and you’ll be able to activate an instance with no more than a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be available to you straight away. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if lots of content will be cached for one site or if the memory will be utilized by multiple Internet sites. Hepsia will permit you to restart or to terminate any instance, to view the system log for it or to delete the cached files using 1-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP address for the sites which will use it.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to boost the loading speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the data caching platform ready to be used at no additional fee, but you will also have full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI. It’ll take only one single click to start or stop an instance or to clear the cached data for any website that is using Varnish and in case you are more proficient, you can also see the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with no less than three gigabytes of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run an enormous number of sites on your server and they all use the platform, the difference in their overall performance will be distinguishable. You’ll only have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the website visitors open on their end. The platform works best when the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but due to the fact that our dedicated servers include three free-of-charge IP addresses, you’ll have everything you need.
