Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can boost the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, 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 when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a considerably faster loading site, which means a much-improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated as well, so the users won’t see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages and you’ll get an amazingly easy-to-use GUI, which will give you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular site. You can also see a comprehensive log file or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you will be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimal performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your websites and to have plenty of satisfied users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us will allow you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated account has been opened, as the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this workload balancing software as soon as your site has been launched. If you are 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 assigned to your semi-dedicated server right away. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more flexibility. The Varnish caching platform will considerably decrease the load on the server produced by your sites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform effortlessly through your Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to clear the cache for any of your Internet sites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use Varnish with any of our virtual private server packages at no additional fee, as the data caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole prerequisite is that the virtual server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with only a couple of clicks. Each plan comes with a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB, which is sufficient even for multiple popular sites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your visitors access, so you will notice the tremendously faster site loading times and the lowered load on the VPS very soon. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less pricey Virtual Private Server, since you won’t need that much power to warrant the proper operation of your websites even if you run traffic-consuming websites with plenty of visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the websites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate the speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra fee, but you’ll also have full control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI. It will take just one mouse click to start or discontinue an instance or to clear the cache for any Internet site that is using Varnish and in case you are more experienced, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of virtual memory for web content caching purposes, so even in case you host many Internet sites on your machine and they all use the platform, the difference in their overall performance will be detectable. You will simply need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers come with three free-of-cost IP addresses, you will have all that you need.
