Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can accelerate the load 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 processed by the web server and the page will open much faster, since the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a much faster loading page, which means an improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the actual site, the information that Varnish saves in its memory is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old data.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to activate Varnish with several clicks of the mouse from your Control Panel. The platform is offered as an upgrade with all our web hosting packages and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be available for the cached data. The two features that can be upgraded in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they aren’t directly linked to each other, so you can choose whether you need a lot of memory for one large-sized site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish platform in case the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the Control Panel, you can swiftly start/reboot/deactivate an instance, delete the cached content individually for each site that uses the Varnish platform or check an exhaustive log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we are offering will permit you to employ Varnish as soon as your brand new account is active, since the data caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can use this load distribution software as soon as your site has been launched. In case you need more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server instantly. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more versatility. The platform will considerably reduce the load on the machine that your sites generate, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish effortlessly from the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/stop any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached content for any of your sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS hosting service, so if you buy a server with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to make full use of the caching platform at no additional fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of system memory for content caching purposes depending on the very setup that you have selected at signup, but at any rate, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the performance of a handful of resource-heavy Internet sites, so the faster page load speeds and the decreased load on the VPS will be perceptible. The result may not be visible straight away, since Varnish will need some time to cache the content that users browse, but shortly after you set it up, you will observe its full potential. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end server and to pay less cash to get the same performance you would get with a more powerful machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are ordered with the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the dedicated server. The Varnish data caching platform can be enabled and managed without effort from the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI and, with no more than a click, you can browse a comprehensive system log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached content for any Internet site and much, much more. Shortly after you configure the Varnish platform for a given domain or subdomain, it will start caching the pages opened by your site visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a significantly faster site performance as well as a reduced load on your server. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you host lots of Internet sites on your dedicated machine.
