Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. 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. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load significantly faster, since the Varnish caching platform can deliver content many times faster than any web server software. The result is a significantly faster loading site, which leads to an improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual site, the content that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated as well, so the website visitors will not end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Website Hosting

You can make use of Varnish’s full potential and improve your websites’ loading speed regardless of the website hosting package that you’ve picked and you can enable and configure the platform with a few clicks of the mouse using the easy-to-use graphical interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to select two different things – how many websites will use the Varnish platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you have lots of content on a given Internet site and you attract lots of visitors, more memory will give you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will provide you with easy 1-click controls for discontinuing or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache associated with each Internet site and for checking exhaustive system logs.
