Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator 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 website 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 handled by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading page, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the content that Varnish keeps in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud website hosting packages. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a pretty easy-to-use interface, which will grant you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or stop any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a given Internet site. You can also see a comprehensive log or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your shared hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for maximum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP to the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have numerous satisfied visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is an essential part of the default service set that you’ll acquire when you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can configure it for any of your websites through our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the Internet sites that can use this caching platform at the same time. As these two things aren’t bound to each other, you can use a couple of instances with the default memory or you can add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for one single web site. Varnish works best when you use a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you an easy way of restarting any instance. What’s more, you’ll be able to clear the cached content with just one click of the mouse.

Varnish in VPS Web Hosting

This amount is sufficient enough to improve the overall performance of numerous Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to detect the results, as the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors open, but soon thereafter you’ll notice the considerably less load on the Virtual Private Server and the improved website load speed. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a lower-end Virtual Private Server package for sites which would usually require a more high-priced hosting service.
