Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can improve the loading speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on its content. Every time 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The end result is a much faster loading site, which leads to an improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the content that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors won’t see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with a few mouse clicks through your Control Panel. The data caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our web hosting packages and you can choose how many sites will use it and the maximum amount of system memory that will be available for the cached content. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they are not linked directly to each other, so you can decide whether you need a lot of memory for one large-scale website or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can take advantage of the full potential of the Varnish caching platform in case the sites use a dedicated IP. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can easily start/reboot/disable an instance, clear the cached data individually for each website that uses Varnish or view an in-depth system log file.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering will allow you to employ Varnish once your new semi-dedicated server account has been activated, as the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software as soon as your site has been launched online. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can add 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server immediately. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which means that you’ll have more flexibility. The Varnish caching platform will seriously reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your sites produce, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without efforts through the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/remove any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached files associated with any of your Internet sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish in order to improve the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no additional cost, but you’ll also exert full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface. It will take only one mouse click to start or disable an instance or to clear the cached content for any Internet site that is using the Varnish platform and in case you are more competent, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of virtual memory for content caching purposes, so even in case you host a huge number of Internet sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their overall performance will be evident. You’ll just need to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever web pages the website visitors access on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the websites use a dedicated IP, but since our servers include three charge-free IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
