Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can boost the loading speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, based on its content. Each time a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading website, which means a greatly improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual Internet site, the data that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the website visitors won’t see out-of-date data.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with each of our website hosting. You can add it to your web hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages and you will get a truly simple-to-use interface, which will grant you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click fast-access controls, you can reboot or disable any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer be activated for a given website. You can also view an exhaustive system log or clear the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you’ll be able to choose the total amount of system memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always order more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for best performance, you can allocate a dedicated IP to the websites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to take full advantage of your websites and to have a lot of pleased site visitors.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take full advantage of the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with any of our VPS servers if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes by default and the amount of memory that it will be able to use to cache the content of your sites depends upon the given package that you have selected, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll have at least several hundred MB of memory at your disposal only for data caching purposes. This amount is enough to improve the work of numerous Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to observe the effects, as the Varnish platform caches the content that visitors open, but shortly thereafter you will notice the substantially reduced load and the accelerated website loading speed. Varnish will allow you to make use of a less powerful VPS package for sites which would normally require a more pricey web hosting solution.
