Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can increase the load speed of a website by up to 1000%, depending on its content. Each time a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a considerably faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the information that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, refers to the total amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI will enable you to disable or to reboot any instance, to see exhaustive system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load tremendously faster, which means more happy visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Varnish by default, so you can take full advantage of the website accelerator tool and boost the loading speed of any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. You’ll get 64 MB of system memory dedicated to the Varnish accelerator at no additional cost and you can enable an instance with no more than a few clicks through 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 in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether plenty of data will be cached for a single website or whether the memory will be utilized by multiple sites. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to restart or to remove any instance, to see the system log associated with it or to delete the cached data using 1-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can set a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated server. The Varnish platform can be activated and managed effortlessly via Hepsia’s time and effort saving interface and, with no more than one click, you can view an in-depth system log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached files for any website and much more. Shortly after you enable the Varnish platform for a certain domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the pages accessed by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough web content, you will witness a significantly better website performance plus a lowered load on the dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for workload balancing purposes even if you host a lot of websites on the dedicated machine.
