Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, 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 in case the visitor opens it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The end result is a much faster loading site, which leads to an enormously improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old information.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud package and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your shared account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you want to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, displays the maximum amount of data that the platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface will allow you to stop or to reboot any instance, to check elaborate system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load significantly faster, which means more happy users and potential customers.
