Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can boost the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load tremendously faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading website, which means an enormously improved visitor experience. When any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated data.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add Varnish with a couple of mouse clicks through your hosting Control Panel. The platform is available as an optional upgrade with all our hosting packages and you can choose how many websites will use it and the total storage space that will be available for the cached data. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they’re not directly tied to each other, so you can decide if you need lots of memory for a single large-size site or less memory for multiple smaller ones. You can use the full potential of Varnish in case the websites use a dedicated IP. Using the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/restart/shut down an instance, clear the cached files independently for each website which uses the Varnish platform or view an elaborate system log.
Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been set up, as the platform comes by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is activated, so you can make use of this workload distribution software as soon as your site has been launched. If you’re in need of more memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be allocated to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. 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 memory that you use, which means that you’ll have more freedom. The Varnish platform will enormously reduce the load on the server that your websites produce, so your website visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish platform effortlessly 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 data associated with any of your sites or to check system log files.
Varnish in VPS Hosting
You can take full advantage of the load balancing potential of Varnish with any of our Linux VPS hosting packages when you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The data caching platform comes by default and the amount of system memory that it’ll be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends on the particular plan that you have selected, but even with the lower-end packages, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of system memory at your disposal solely for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to boost the overall performance of multiple websites. It will take some time for you to see the results, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors open, but shortly after that you will notice the substantially lowered load on your server and the accelerated Internet site load speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a lower-end plan for websites that would typically require a more costly hosting service.
Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

The Varnish content caching platform can be configured and managed without effort via Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate interface and, with no more than one mouse click, you can view an exhaustive system log, create or restart an instance, delete the cached content associated with any site and much more. Shortly after you configure the Varnish platform for a specific domain or sub-domain, it will begin caching the web pages accessed by the website visitors and once it has cached enough content, you’ll perceive a substantially better site performance and a lowered load on the server. With Varnish-dedicated system memory starting at 3 GB, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload balancing purposes even if you run lots of websites on the server.
