Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Each 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 if the visitor loads it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, since Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result is a much faster loading website, which leads to an improved browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the live Internet site, the content that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared web hosting package and if you want to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the websites that you wish to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, refers to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given time. Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface will allow you to deactivate or to reboot any instance, to see comprehensive logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimum results, you can employ a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your site will open considerably faster, meaning more pleased users and potential clients.

If you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantly. You can also add more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can decide whether lots of content will be cached for a single site or whether the memory will be used by several websites. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to reboot or to delete any instance, to check the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached data using single-click buttons. To take full advantage of the Varnish accelerator, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will employ it.

The Varnish platform will need to work for a while as the visitors navigate the website and as soon as the content has been cached, you will distinguish the effects.
