Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can boost the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Every time a visitor accesses any page on a website 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 server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading website, which leads to an improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated too, so the visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and boost your sites’ load speed irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you’ve selected and you can enable and configure the platform with a few clicks via the user-friendly interface offered by our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will employ the Varnish platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 MB and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you have a lot of content on a particular website and you attract a lot of website visitors, more system memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will provide you with easy 1-click controls for removing or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache for each website and for seeing elaborate system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish caching platform is part of the default set of services that you’ll get when you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your Internet sites via our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the sites that can use this caching platform simultaneously. As these two things aren’t tied to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single website. The Varnish caching platform works best when you get a dedicated IP address for the websites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you a simple means of restarting any instance. Furthermore, you will be able to delete the cached content with only one single click.

Varnish in VPS Servers

We offer Varnish with all of the Hepsia-equipped Linux VPS plans, so if you purchase a VPS with this hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the data caching platform at no additional charge. The Varnish platform can utilize different amounts of memory for data caching purposes based on the very package that you have chosen during the signup process, but in any case, this amount will not be less than several hundred megabytes. This is quite enough to improve the performance of a number of resource-consuming sites, so the faster page browsing speeds and the less load on the virtual machine will be discernible. The effect may not be distinguishable momentarily, as Varnish will require a certain amount of time to cache the content that users browse, but shortly after you enable it, you’ll observe its full potential. This caching platform will permit you to use a less powerful server and to pay less money to get the very same performance you would get with a more powerful virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you get any of the dedicated servers offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the Varnish data caching platform to optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites at no additional cost on the condition that the server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-navigate graphical interface will allow you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached files or to reboot any instance with one mouse click. The minimal amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache site content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a vast collection of busy Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a substantial system load while your Internet site visitors are enjoying a seamless web browsing experience. Since your dedicated server will include several dedicated IP addresses, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
