Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a much faster loading website, which means a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing outdated info.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared website hosting package and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you wish to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of data that the platform can cache at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving interface will allow you to remove or to restart any instance, to view elaborate system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load considerably faster, which means more happy visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering will permit you to employ Varnish once your brand-new semi-dedicated account has been opened, since the content caching platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load distribution software as soon as your website has been built. If you need more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in an instant. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more freedom. The platform will substantially decrease the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your websites cause, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort through your Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/remove any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached content for any of your sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

When you want a more powerful hosting solution and you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to optimize the overall performance of your sites at no extra fee as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with graphical interface will enable you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached content or to restart any instance with one click of the mouse. The minimum amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a vast collection of resource-consuming websites, so your server will be able to handle a tremendous system load while your website visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. As your dedicated server will come with a number of dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
