Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Every time a visitor opens any page on a website 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 browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, since the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The result is a significantly faster loading website, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the website visitors will not see outdated content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to activate Varnish with a couple of mouse clicks through your hosting Control Panel. The platform is offered as an upgrade with all our shared web hosting packages and you can select how many sites will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be available for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they aren’t tied directly to each other, so you can decide if you need plenty of memory for a single large website or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unleash the full potential of Varnish if the sites use a dedicated IP. With the hosting Control Panel, you can swiftly start/reboot/disable an instance, clear the cached contents independently for each website that uses Varnish or view a detailed system log file.

In case you are in need of more memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server in an instant. 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 system memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more flexibility. The Varnish platform will significantly decrease the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your websites generate, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform effortlessly via your Control Panel using fast-access buttons. You will be able to start/cancel any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached files for any of your Internet sites or to view system log files.

Each plan features a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for multiple resource-consuming sites. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your website visitors browse, so you’ll notice the substantially better site loading times and the decreased load on your Virtual Private Server very soon. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less high-priced Virtual Private Server, since you won’t require that much power to warrant the correct operation of your websites even if you own resource-demanding sites with lots of visitors. Maximum results are achieved if the Internet sites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting services which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish caching platform can be activated and managed without any effort from Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can see an in-depth system log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cache associated with any site and much more. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform for a particular domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the webpages browsed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will witness a substantially better website performance as well as a reduced server load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you host numerous sites on your server.
