Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can boost the speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on its content. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a considerably faster loading website, which leads to an improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the information that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old info.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux cloud hosting. You can add it to your hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared plans and you’ll get a really user-friendly graphical interface, which will give you full control over the caching platform. Using one-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a particular site. You can also check an exhaustive system log file or delete the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your web hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for content caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for best performance, you can set a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your Internet sites and to have numerous pleased users.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers
Varnish is a feature, which is offered by default with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It’s available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The data caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached content storing purposes and you can employ it with any website that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you’re in need of more than that, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The exact same Upgrades section will enable you to enable more instances too, in case you’d like to use the Varnish caching platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one busy site or run several different Internet sites with the default memory allocation. You can take full advantage of the Varnish caching platform if you have a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. Hepsia will grant you total control over the platform and, with no more than a click, you will be able to delete the cache, to see a log file or to reboot an instance.

The caching platform is offered by default and the system memory that it will be able to use to cache your website content is dependent upon the given plan that you’ve picked, but even with the less powerful packages, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal exclusively for caching purposes. This amount is sufficient enough to optimize the performance of numerous websites. It will take a little time for you to notice the effects, as Varnish caches the content that website visitors access, but shortly after that you’ll notice the significantly decreased load on the VPS server and the accelerated site loading speed.
