Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending 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 when the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a much faster loading page, which means a much-improved visitor experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors will never see old information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with GUI will allow you to switch off or to reboot any instance, to see elaborate logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open significantly faster, which means more pleased website visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering will permit you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated server account is active, since the data caching platform comes by default. 64 MB of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this load balancing software once your site has been built. In case you are in need of more system memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more freedom. The Varnish platform will enormously decrease the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your sites generate, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform without effort through the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You will be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached files for any of your websites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can use the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our VPS web hosting service in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Varnish content caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your website content is dependent on the specific Virtual Private Server plan that you have selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes of system memory at your disposal solely for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to boost the work of multiple websites. It will take a little time for you to detect the results, since the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors request, but soon after that you will notice the considerably decreased load on your VPS and the enhanced site load speed. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less powerful VPS plan for Internet sites which would normally require a more expensive hosting service.
