Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens 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. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, as Varnish can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a much faster loading site, which leads to an enormously improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the users won’t see old data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the platform can store at any given moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface will enable you to cancel or to reboot any instance, to check detailed system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open tremendously faster, which means more happy users and prospective customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated servers that we are offering will allow you to use Varnish once your new semi-dedicated account has been activated, as the caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this workload distribution software as soon as your site has been built. If you need more memory, you can order 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine instantly. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which goes to say that you’ll have more flexibility. The platform will noticeably decrease the load on the semi-dedicated server caused by your websites, so your site visitors can enjoy fast-loading pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform with no effort through the Hepsia Control Panel using fast-access controls. You’ll be able to start/disable any of the instances that you have, to delete the cached data associated with any of your websites or to check system logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are ordered with the in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel come with Varnish, which is among the pre-installed software platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine. The Varnish platform can be activated and administered with no effort via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view a comprehensive system log, add or reboot an instance, delete the cached content for any Internet site and much more. Shortly after you set up Varnish for a certain domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages browsed by the website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you’ll observe a significantly better website performance plus a lowered load. With Varnish-dedicated virtual memory starting at 3 gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run a huge number of Internet sites on your server.
