Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. 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 if the visitor loads it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, as Varnish can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading page, which means an improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the website visitors will never see outdated content.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your sites under a cloud hosting account with our company, you will be able to activate Varnish with a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared web hosting packages and you can choose the number of the websites that will use it and the maximum storage space that will be used for the cached content. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they are not directly tied to each other, so you can decide whether you need a lot of memory for a single large-scale site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can unlock the full potential of the Varnish platform if the websites use a dedicated IP. With the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/stop an instance, clear the cached data individually for each site which employs the Varnish platform or see a detailed log file.

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our virtual private server plans at no extra charge, since the caching platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole precondition is that the virtual server must be ordered 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 plan features a different amount of system memory for caching purposes, but you will get minimum several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several frequently visited Internet sites. Soon after you set up Varnish, it will start caching the content that your website visitors request, so you will notice the considerably better Internet site load times and the decreased load on the virtual server in no time. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less pricey server, as you will not need that much power to ensure the correct operation of your sites even if you have large Internet sites with many visitors. Optimum results are achieved if the sites which use the Varnish caching platform also use a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

Its simple-to-navigate GUI will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cached data or to restart any instance with one single click. The smallest amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache content is 3 GB, which is quite enough for a vast collection of traffic-intensive websites, so your server will be able to handle a colossal system load while your website visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. Since your server will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full potential.
