Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can improve the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. 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 in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading website, which means a greatly improved browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the information that Varnish saves in its memory is updated too, so the website visitors won’t see old content.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux website hosting packages. You can add it to your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared packages and you will get a rather intuitive interface, which will grant you complete control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or delete any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be enabled for a specific site. You can also view an elaborate log or erase the cache associated with any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting package, you will be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimal performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your websites and to have many pleased website users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator and speed up any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You will get 64 MB of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you can add an instance with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose if a lot of data will be cached for one website or whether the memory will be utilized by different websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to see the system log for it or to clear the cached content using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the websites which will employ it.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish in order to enhance the speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the platform ready to be used at no extra cost, but you’ll also exert complete control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface. It’ll take only one mouse click to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached files for any website that is using Varnish and in case you are more trained, you can also browse the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of virtual memory for data caching purposes, so even if you run a vast number of websites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their performance will be distinguishable. You will simply need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the website visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but owing to the fact that our servers come with three free-of-charge IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
