Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000%, depending on the content itself. Each 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 if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, since Varnish can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The result is a significantly faster loading site, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors won’t end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any particular time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to see elaborate logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load tremendously faster, meaning more pleased visitors and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting service come with Varnish by default, so you can use the web app accelerator and increase the speed of any website that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you can activate an instance with no more than a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. If you want more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB through the Upgrades section of the Control Panel and it will be at your disposal instantaneously. You can also add more instances as an upgrade, so you can choose if plenty of content will be cached for one website or whether the available memory will be used by several sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to delete any instance, to view the system log for it or to clear the cached data using 1-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the Internet sites which will employ it.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish in order to accelerate the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed on it. Not only will you get the platform ready for use at no extra charge, but you will also have total control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-use graphical interface. It’ll take only one click to start or disable an instance or to delete the cache associated with any website that’s using Varnish and if you are more trained, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of system memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you host a lot of sites on your dedicated machine and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their performance will be detectable. You will simply have to wait for a while until Varnish caches whatever pages the visitors access on their end. The platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but since our dedicated servers include 3 free-of-cost IP addresses, you will have everything you need.
