Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can increase the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open considerably faster, since Varnish can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading website, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the users will not see old content.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can unlock Varnish’s full potential and enhance your websites’ speed regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you have selected and you can activate and set up the data caching platform with a few clicks using the intuitive interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the procedure, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will employ the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can add more instances and less memory and vice versa. In case you’ve got plenty of content on a specific website and you attract many site visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with simple one-click buttons for cancelling or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache associated with any website and for checking in-depth logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Varnish by default, so you can use the website accelerator and enhance the loading speed of any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of memory dedicated to Varnish at no additional charge and you’ll be able to create an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you need more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal momentarily. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide if a lot of data will be cached for a single site or whether the memory will be used by different Internet sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to reboot or to shut down any instance, to view the system log for it or to clear the cached data using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can allocate a dedicated IP address to the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use Varnish with any of our VPS server plans at no additional cost, as the content caching platform is pre-installed and is available by default. The sole condition is that the virtual machine must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll be able to activate Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each Virtual Private Server plan comes with a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you’ll get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient enough even for multiple resource-consuming sites. Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll begin caching the content that your website visitors browse, so you will notice the significantly faster site loading speeds and the less load on your virtual machine very soon. The caching platform will permit you to use a less expensive virtual server, since you will not need that much power to guarantee the correct operation of your sites even if you have traffic-intensive websites with multiple visitors. Best results are accomplished if the websites that use Varnish also use a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

When you need a more powerful website hosting solution and you buy one of the dedicated servers that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish caching platform to optimize the performance of your Internet sites at no extra fee on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its user-friendly interface will permit you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with one single mouse click. The minimal amount of system memory that the platform can employ to cache content is 3 GB, which is more than enough for a huge selection of large-scale websites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a huge system load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth web browsing experience. Since your machine will include a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
