Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can improve the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Whenever a visitor opens 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 web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a much faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated data.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each cloud plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two separate things that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the platform can store at any particular moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface will permit you to stop or to reboot any instance, to check elaborate system logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will open considerably faster, which means more happy visitors and prospective clients.
