Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web application accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Whenever 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 loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load significantly faster, since Varnish can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The result is a substantially faster loading page, which leads to an improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see old content.

Varnish in Hosting

You can unleash Varnish’s full potential and speed up your sites regardless of the hosting plan that you have chosen and you can activate and set up the platform with a couple of mouse clicks through the simple-to-work-with graphical interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use Varnish, in other words – the number of instances, and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you have lots of content on a certain site and you attract a lot of website visitors, more memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the Varnish platform. Hepsia will offer you simple one-click buttons for deactivating or rebooting any instance, for clearing the cache for each website and for viewing elaborate logs.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no additional charge, as the platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The sole precondition is that the server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to activate Varnish for any of your websites with only a few clicks. Each VPS plan offers a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite sufficient even for several large-scale websites. Soon after you activate the Varnish platform, it’ll start caching the content that your site visitors open, so you’ll notice the substantially better Internet site load speeds and the decreased load on your server very soon. The Varnish platform will permit you to use a less pricey virtual machine, since you will not require that much power to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of your sites even if you own traffic-hungry Internet sites with plenty of visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the sites that use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you want the most powerful web hosting solution and you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting that we are offering, you can use the Varnish content caching platform to enhance the work of your Internet sites at no additional fee as long as the server is ordered with our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its user-friendly GUI will enable you to keep an eye on platform processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one single click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can employ to cache content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for a huge selection of large-scale websites, so your server will be able to deal with an immense system load while your website visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will come with several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s maximum capacity.
