Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a website by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. 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 loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open much faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading site, which leads to a much-improved visitor experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the information that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the users will not end up seeing out-of-date information.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux website 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 Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the sites that you would like to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any particular moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface will allow you to remove or to restart any instance, to view elaborate system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will load tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied site users and potential clients.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

If you need a powerful hosting solution and you get any of the Linux dedicated hosting offered by our company, you can use the Varnish platform to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no extra charge as long as the server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its simple-to-use GUI will allow you to keep track of platform processes, to clear the cache or to restart any instance with one mouse click. The minimum amount of memory that Varnish can use to cache website content is 3 gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large collection of resource-heavy websites, so your dedicated server will be able to cope with a colossal load while your site visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. As your machine will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
