Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, as Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The result is a substantially faster loading site, which leads to a greatly improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will not end up seeing old information.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your sites under a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add Varnish with several mouse clicks via your Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered as an upgrade with all our shared web hosting plans and you can choose how many sites will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they are not linked directly to each other, so you can decide whether you want plenty of memory for one large-sized site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can take advantage of the full potential of the Varnish platform in case the sites use a dedicated IP address. Using the Control Panel, you can quickly start/reboot/terminate an instance, delete the cached data independently for each website which employs the Varnish platform or see a comprehensive system log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish data caching platform is included in the default service set that you’ll obtain when you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your Internet sites through our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. The default system memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this platform at the same time. Since these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a couple of Internet sites with the default memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single Internet site. Varnish performs best if you use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple way of rebooting any instance. Furthermore, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents with just a click.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to improve the speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company if the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you will also have full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface. It will take only one single click of the mouse to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cached content for any website that is using the Varnish platform and if you are more knowledgeable, you can also browse the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of system memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you host a large number of Internet sites on your server and they all use the caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be perceivable. You’ll only have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors open on their end. The platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that our dedicated servers come with 3 free IPs, you will have everything you need.
