Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator tool that can increase the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. 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 accesses it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which leads to an improved browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the website visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date data.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our hosting. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you’ll get a rather simple-to-work-with graphical interface, which will grant you full control over the content caching system. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or delete any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be activated for a specific site. You can also view an elaborate log file or delete the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your Internet sites and to have numerous gratified site visitors.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish to increase the loading speed of any website that is hosted on a dedicated server with us when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready for use at no additional charge, but you’ll also exert full control over it via Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with GUI. It’ll take only one single click to start or shut down an instance or to clear the cache associated with any Internet site that’s using Varnish and if you are more tech-savvy, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of memory for site content caching purposes, so even if you host many Internet sites on your server and they all use the caching platform, the improvement in their performance will be noticeable. You’ll just need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors open on their end. The Varnish platform works best when the websites use a dedicated IP, but since our dedicated servers come with three free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
