Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can boost the speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load much faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading website, which means an immensely improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated too, so the visitors will not see outdated content.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux web hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting packages and you’ll get a pretty user-friendly interface, which will grant you complete control over the data caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or terminate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular Internet site. You can also view a comprehensive system log file or delete the cache for any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for optimum performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have lots of pleased site users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform is an essential part of the basic set of services that you will obtain if you decide to host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your websites through our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but if you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two things are not bound to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default amount of 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 performs best if you set a dedicated IP for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will give you a simple means of rebooting any instance. On top of that, you will be able to clear the cached contents with only one single click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS

You can use Varnish with any of our virtual private server plans at no additional fee, since the platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The one and only precondition is that the VPS server must come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your sites with just a couple of mouse clicks. Each Virtual Private Server package includes a different amount of memory for data caching purposes, but you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is sufficient even for several traffic-heavy Internet sites. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform, it will start caching the content that your visitors browse, so you will notice the tremendously faster Internet site loading speeds and the lowered load on your VPS server in no time. The Varnish caching platform will permit you to use a less high-priced server, since you will not require that many resources to sustain the proper operation of your Internet sites even if you have resource-requiring sites with a lot of visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the websites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP address.
