Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Every time a visitor opens any page on a website 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 browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The result is a substantially faster loading page, which means an improved browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated too, so the site visitors won’t see old information.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with several clicks of the mouse through your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform is offered as an optional upgrade with all our shared packages and you can select the number of the sites that will use it and the total storage space that will be available for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they’re not directly linked to each other, so you can decide if you need a lot of memory for one single large site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can use the full potential of the Varnish platform if the sites use a dedicated IP. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/disable an instance, delete the cached contents independently for each website which uses the Varnish platform or check an elaborate system log.

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 opened, since the platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can make use of this load balancing software once your website has been taken online. If you need more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server straight away. You can also increase the number of the websites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you will have more versatility. The Varnish platform will enormously reduce the load on the semi-dedicated machine that your websites produce, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort through your Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached content for any of your sites or to view system logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful hosting solution and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to improve the work of your websites at no extra charge as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-navigate graphical interface will permit you to monitor system processes, to clear the cached data or to reboot any instance with one single mouse click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge collection of resource-consuming sites, so your dedicated server will be able to deal with a huge load while your website visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your server will include several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
