Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on its content. Each time a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the visitors won’t see old data.

Varnish in Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux hosting package and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account through the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you’d like to use Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of content that the content caching platform can store at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will allow you to deactivate or to reboot any instance, to view exhaustive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open tremendously faster, which means more happy visitors and potential customers.
