Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can improve the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Every time a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open considerably faster, since Varnish can serve information many times faster than any server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading website, which means an improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the information that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the visitors will not end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and accelerate your sites’ loading speed irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you’ve picked and you can activate and set up the data caching platform with a few clicks of the mouse through the easy-to-use GUI offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will employ the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can order more instances and less memory and the other way around. If you have plenty of content on a particular Internet site and you gain a lot of visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy one-click controls for removing or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for each website and for viewing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is an essential part of the basic set of services that you will get if you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your websites through our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a few sites with the default amount of memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single Internet site. The Varnish caching platform works best if you allocate a dedicated IP address to the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple means of restarting any instance. Furthermore, you will be able to delete the cached data with only one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish data caching platform comes by default with each of the Linux VPS servers offered by our company on the condition that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the performance of your sites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a less powerful plan, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you own several Internet sites, you will notice an enormous reduction in the overall server load and a considerably faster webpage load speed. The platform will have to work for a little while as the users browse the web pages and once the website content has been cached, you’ll see the effect. One of the benefits of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive VPS plan will do the same job as a more pricey one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites perform significantly better, but you will also save some money.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a more powerful website hosting solution and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated service that we’re offering, you will be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no extra cost as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate interface will permit you to keep an eye on platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The smallest amount of system memory that Varnish can employ to cache site content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a vast collection of resource-demanding websites, so your server will be able to handle a gigantic load while your visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your machine will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
