Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. 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 browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open much faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading page, which means a much-improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish saves in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated information.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish platform is included in the standard set of services that you’ll get if you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your Internet sites via our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two features aren’t bound to each other, you can use several Internet sites with the default amount of memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single site. The Varnish platform performs best when you assign a dedicated IP to the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will offer you an easy way of restarting any instance. Furthermore, you will be able to clear the cached data with only a click.

Varnish in VPS

You can use the workload balancing capabilities of Varnish with all our VPS services if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish data caching platform is available by default and the system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache your website content is dependent on the particular VPS package that you have chosen, but even with the lower-end plans, you will have at least several hundred megabytes of memory at your disposal exclusively for content caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the work of numerous websites. It will take a little time for you to detect the effects, as Varnish caches the content that visitors request, but shortly thereafter you’ll notice the significantly lowered load on your server and the enhanced Internet site loading speed. The Varnish platform will allow you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server package for sites that would usually need a more costly web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

All Linux dedicated hosting which are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel include Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you’ll get with the server. The Varnish content caching platform can be activated and administered with ease from the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with interface and, with no more than one single mouse click, you can browse a comprehensive log, create or reboot an instance, delete the cached files associated with any website and much more. Shortly after you configure the Varnish platform for a certain domain or subdomain, it will start caching the pages requested by the site visitors and once it has cached enough web content, you will observe a tremendously better site performance and a lowered load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you will be able to use the platform for load balancing purposes even if you run a large number of websites on your machine.
