Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can increase the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. 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. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, as the Varnish caching platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading page, which means an immensely improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the content that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users won’t see out-of-date info.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting package and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you want to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 MB, indicates the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any particular time. Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface will allow you to cancel or to reboot any instance, to view detailed system logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just a click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open substantially faster, meaning more pleased site users and potential customers.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Varnish platform is included in the standard service set that you will obtain if you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can set it up for any of your Internet sites via our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of memory that the Varnish caching platform can use to cache data is 64 MB, but if you decide that you want more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the websites that can use this caching platform at the same time. Since these two things are not bound to each other, you can use a few Internet sites with the default amount of memory or you can order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and use all of it for a single website. The Varnish platform works best when you use a dedicated IP address for the sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with an easy way of rebooting any instance.
