Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Every time a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will load much faster, since the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any server software. The result will be a much faster loading site, which means an improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the information that Varnish saves in its system memory is updated too, so the users will never see out-of-date content.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting plan and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one depends on the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for and the second one, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, displays the maximum amount of data that the platform can cache at any given time. Hepsia’s intuitive GUI will permit you to delete or to reboot any instance, to view detailed logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just click of the mouse. For optimum results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load much faster, meaning more pleased website users and prospective clients.
