Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can improve the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if 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 tremendously faster, since Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading page, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors won’t see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each shared plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with GUI will permit you to disable or to reboot any instance, to check in-depth logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open substantially faster, which means more happy site visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated plans that we are offering will permit you to use Varnish as soon as your brand-new account has been activated, since the caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load distribution software once your website has been launched online. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can get 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated server in a flash. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will considerably reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage Varnish effortlessly from the Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache associated with any of your websites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We provide Varnish with all of the Hepsia-managed VPS plans, so in case you obtain a VPS with this Control Panel, you’ll be able to take advantage of the caching platform at no additional charge. Varnish can utilize different amounts of system memory for caching purposes based on the very sever setup that you have selected during the VPS order process, but at any rate, this amount won’t be less than several hundred MB. This is quite enough to enhance the overall performance of a handful of resource-intensive websites, so the better web page browsing speeds and the decreased load on the VPS server will be discernible. The result may not be distinguishable right away, as the Varnish platform will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that users access, but soon after you enable it, you’ll witness its full capacity. This caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end VPS and to pay less cash to get the exact same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want a powerful website hosting solution and you purchase any of the dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering, you can use the Varnish caching platform to improve the overall performance of your websites at no additional charge as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with interface will permit you to monitor system processes, to delete the cache or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The minimum amount of system memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache website content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for an immense selection of resource-heavy websites, so your server will be able to handle a massive load while your visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your server will come with several different dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
