Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator that can increase the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Every time 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. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The end result will be a significantly faster loading site, which means an immensely improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the info that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old content.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting and if you would like to use it, you can add it to your shared website hosting account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the Internet sites that you wish to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of content that the content caching platform can cache at any particular moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface will allow you to delete or to restart any instance, to check exhaustive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load significantly faster, meaning more pleased website users and potential customers.
