Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. 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 in case the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open much faster, as Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result is a much faster loading website, which means a greatly improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual Internet site, the info that Varnish stores in its memory is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
Varnish is offered as an optional upgrade with all our Linux cloud web hosting service. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages and you will get an amazingly simple-to-use interface, which will grant you complete control over the content caching platform. Using one-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or deactivate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a certain Internet site. You can also check an exhaustive system log file or delete the cache associated with any of the websites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of system memory that will be at your disposal for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 MB and, for top performance, you can get a dedicated IP address for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to get the most out of your sites and to have many satisfied site visitors.
