Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Anytime 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 opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every shared web hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving GUI will permit you to switch off or to reboot any instance, to view detailed logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load substantially faster, which means more happy site visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish once your brand new account has been activated, since the data caching platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can take advantage of this workload distribution software as soon as your website has been launched online. If you’re in need of more system memory, you can add 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 straight away. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not bound directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which goes to say that you will have more flexibility. The Varnish caching platform will noticeably decrease the server load that your websites generate, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without any effort via the Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached files for any of your websites or to see system log files.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish data caching platform can be activated and managed effortlessly via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI and, with no more than one single click, you can browse a detailed system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached files associated with any website and much more. Soon after you activate Varnish for a given domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the web pages opened by the site visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will witness a tremendously faster site performance in addition to a lowered load on your dedicated machine. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you host a lot of websites on your dedicated server.
