Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading site, which leads to an improved visitor experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see old info.

Varnish in Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of content that the platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface will enable you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to view comprehensive system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For best results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will open substantially faster, meaning more satisfied users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all semi-dedicated service that we’re offering and you can use it for load balancing purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes with 64 megabytes of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in your account. In case you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the memory quota. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The same Upgrades section will permit you to add more instances too, if you would like to use the Varnish platform with more websites. The two upgrades can be added separately – you can cache the content of one single regularly visited site or run several different sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you use a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over the caching platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to delete the cached content, to check a log file or to reboot an instance.

Each VPS package comes with a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is sufficient enough even for multiple resource-hungry Internet sites. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your site visitors open, so you will notice the considerably faster web page loading times and the reduced load on your server in no time. The caching platform will allow you to use a less high-priced virtual server, since you will not need that much power to sustain the uninterrupted operation of your sites even if you manage large-sized websites with a lot of visitors. Best results are achieved if the sites which use the Varnish platform use also a dedicated IP address.
