Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Every time a visitor accesses 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 web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading website, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors won’t end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud website hosting and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any given moment. Hepsia’s time and effort saving GUI will enable you to cancel or to restart any instance, to see elaborate logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load considerably faster, meaning more satisfied visitors and potential clients.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you order a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll obtain the Varnish content caching platform at no extra cost and you will exert complete control over it via a very time and effort saving GUI – you will be able to start, to remove or to restart an instance, to see a detailed system log, to delete the cache associated with any website and much more. The Varnish platform will have several GB of virtual memory at its disposal, so even if you’ve got resource-requiring Internet sites with multiple visitors, you will notice the significantly faster site loading times and the lowered load on your dedicated server. This will become a fact soon after you start using the Varnish platform, since it will require a certain amount of time to cache the website content that users access. You can make the most of the platform’s capacity if the sites that are using it use also a dedicated IP, but since your server comes with a few IP addresses by default, you will not have to pay anything on top of the monthly fee for the machine itself.
