Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a website 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 accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open much faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver content many times faster than any server software. The result is a significantly faster loading page, which leads to an immensely improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the content that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the website visitors will not end up seeing out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the total amount of data that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface will permit you to turn off or to restart any instance, to view in-depth system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just a click. For best results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, which means more pleased website users and prospective clients.
