Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Every time a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, as the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a much faster loading site, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live Internet site, the content that Varnish stores in its memory is updated as well, so the users will not see old info.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each Linux hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, refers to the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will permit you to cancel or to restart any instance, to view exhaustive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just a click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your website will open tremendously faster, which means more pleased visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting include Varnish by default, so you can make use of the web app accelerator tool and enhance the load speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 MB of system memory particularly for the Varnish accelerator at no extra charge and you will be able to add an instance with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated packages. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal immediately. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of content will be cached for a single site or if the memory will be used by different websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to disable any instance, to check the system log for it or to delete the cached content using single-click controls. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites which will employ it.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can use Varnish to increase the loading speed of any website that’s hosted on a dedicated server from our company when the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no extra charge, but you’ll also have total control over it through Hepsia’s user-friendly interface. It’ll take only one click to start or delete an instance or to delete the cache for any website that’s using the Varnish platform and if you are more advanced, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run a lot of sites on your dedicated server and they all use the platform, the improvement in their performance will be evident. You will only need to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever content the visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the sites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers come with 3 free IPs, you’ll have everything you need.
