Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Whenever a visitor opens 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a substantially faster loading page, which means an improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish caches in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will not see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting service and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the total amount of content that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface will allow you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load much faster, which means more happy site users and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which comes by default with all semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and you can use it for workload balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in the account. In case you’re in need of more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to enable more instances too, in case you wish to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple websites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of a single resource-hungry website or run several different Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you will be able to delete the cached files, to view a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish in order to accelerate the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you’ll also exert complete control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface. It’ll take just one single click to start or delete an instance or to clear the cached data for any Internet site that is using Varnish and if you’re more experienced, you can also see the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of system memory for web content caching purposes, so even in case you run numerous websites on your dedicated server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be observable. You’ll just need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but due to the fact that our servers include 3 free-of-charge IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
