Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Each time a visitor opens 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 opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open significantly faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading website, which leads to a much-improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the info that Varnish stores in its memory is updated as well, so the users won’t see old content.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to employ Varnish once your brand new account has been created, as the content caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload distribution software as soon as your site has been published to the web. In case you’re in need of more system memory, you can order 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine in a flash. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will noticeably reduce the load that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You will be able to manage the Varnish platform without effort from your Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached files associated with any of your sites or to see system logs.

Varnish in VPS Servers

The Varnish content caching platform comes by default with all VPS plans that we offer on the condition that the Virtual Private Server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can optimize the performance of your websites with only a couple of clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more system memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you run a number of sites, you will notice a noticeable decrease in the overall server load and a substantially better webpage loading speed. The Varnish platform will have to work for a while as the visitors browse the website and once the content has been cached, you will notice the result. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less costly plan will accomplish the same job as a more expensive one without the caching platform, so not only will your Internet sites work much better, but you’ll also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can employ Varnish to optimize the load speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server from our company if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you’ll also exert total control over it via Hepsia’s intuitive interface. It’ll take just one click of the mouse to start or cancel an instance or to clear the cached content associated with any site that’s using the Varnish platform and in case you are more knowledgeable, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least three gigabytes of system memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you host a large number of sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be noticeable. You will only have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever pages the website visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP, but since our dedicated servers include three free-of-cost IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
