Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, 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 when the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, as the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the actual website, the data that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the users will not see old information.
Varnish in Shared Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our shared hosting services
. You can add it to your website hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared plans and you’ll get a quite user-friendly interface, which will grant you complete control over the caching platform. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or stop any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a particular site. You can also see an elaborate log file or delete the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of memory that will be available to you for content caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your sites and to have numerous satisfied site users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated hosting
offered by our company will permit you to use Varnish once your brand new semi-dedicated account has been opened, as the content caching platform is available by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can use this load distribution software as soon as your website has been published online. If you are in need of more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine right away. You can also increase the number of the websites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not linked directly to the amount of system memory that you use, which suggests that you will enjoy more versatility. The Varnish caching platform will enormously reduce the load caused by your sites, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform with no effort via your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/delete any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cached files for any of your websites or to see system log files.
Varnish in VPS Web Hosting
The Varnish platform comes by default with each of the VPS web hosting
offered by our company on the condition that the virtual server is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can enhance the performance of your sites with only a couple of mouse clicks. The more powerful the package, the more system memory Varnish will have at its disposal, but even with a low-end plan, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you’ve got several Internet sites, you will notice an immense decrease in the server load and a much better page load speed. The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a little while as the visitors navigate the web pages and once the website content has been cached, you will notice the effect. One of the advantages of employing Varnish is that a lower-end and less expensive VPS package will accomplish the very same job as a more high-priced one without the platform, so not only will your Internet sites work better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.
Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated hosting services
that are ordered with the custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is one of the pre-installed platforms that you will get with the dedicated machine.

Shortly after you activate the Varnish platform for a specific domain or subdomain, it will start caching the pages opened by the site visitors and once it has cached enough content, you will observe a tremendously faster site performance in addition to a reduced load on your dedicated server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the software platform for load balancing purposes even if you host numerous sites on the dedicated machine.
