Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can improve the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based 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 when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading website, which means a much-improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will not end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our Linux shared website hosting packages. You can add it to your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with all shared web hosting packages and you’ll get an amazingly simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will give you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can restart or delete any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular Internet site. You can also see a comprehensive system log file or erase the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can set a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have a lot of gratified site users.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

We provide Varnish with all Hepsia-managed Linux VPS hosting, so if you purchase a VPS with this web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to use the content caching platform at no extra fee. The Varnish platform can use different amounts of memory for caching purposes based on the particular sever setup that you have picked during the order process, but in any case, this amount won’t be less than several hundred megabytes. This is more than enough to enhance the performance of a number of traffic-heavy Internet sites, so the faster site loading speeds and the less server load will be noticeable. The effect may not be detectable instantly, since the Varnish platform will need a certain amount of time to cache the website content that people request, but soon after you set it up, you’ll witness its full capacity. This platform will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server and to pay less money to get the same performance you’d get with a higher-end virtual machine without Varnish.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which are ordered with the custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish platform can be enabled and administered without any effort from the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI and, with no more than one click of the mouse, you can check a comprehensive log, create or restart an instance, clear the cached data for any site and much, much more. Soon after you enable Varnish for a given domain or sub-domain, it will start caching the webpages requested by your visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will observe a considerably faster site performance and a lowered load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you will be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you host lots of Internet sites on the dedicated server.
