Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can increase the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, since Varnish can serve information many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading page, which means an improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the users won’t see outdated info.

Varnish in Web Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface will allow you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to view in-depth system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load considerably faster, which means more satisfied website visitors and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is included as standard with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It is available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any Internet site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. In case you need more than that, you can increase the memory allowance. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 megabytes through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to create more instances as well, in case you would like to use the Varnish caching platform with more websites. The two upgrades can be ordered separately – you can cache the content of one large website or run several different sites with the default memory allowance. You can get the most out of Varnish if you’ve got a dedicated IP address and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server package as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over the caching platform and, with no more than one mouse click, you will be able to delete the cached files, to see a system log file or to restart an instance.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will obtain the Varnish data caching platform at no extra cost and you will exert total control over it through an extremely intuitive graphical interface – you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot an instance, to see an exhaustive log, to delete the cache for any site and much more. The Varnish platform will have several GB of system memory at its disposal, so even if you host busy websites with numerous visitors, you’ll notice the considerably faster site load speeds and the less load on the machine. This will happen soon after you begin using Varnish, as it will need a certain amount of time to cache the site content that users open. You can make the most of the platform’s capacity in case the sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP address, but considering the fact that your dedicated server comes with several IPs by default, you will not need to pay anything on top of your monthly charge for the machine itself.
