Varnish is a data caching platform, which is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator that can improve the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on the content itself. Whenever 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 opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will open substantially faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a substantially faster loading website, which leads to an enormously improved website browsing experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the information that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors won’t end up seeing outdated data.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting and if you’d like to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account via the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 megabytes, shows the total amount of data that the data caching platform can cache at any given moment. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI will enable you to delete or to reboot any instance, to see comprehensive system logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For best 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 happy website users and potential clients.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are ordered with the tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel feature Varnish, which is among the pre-installed platforms that you’ll get with the machine. The Varnish content caching platform can be configured and administered without any effort through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface and, with no more than one single click of the mouse, you can see an exhaustive system log, add or reboot an instance, clear the cached data for any website and much more. Shortly after you set up Varnish for a certain domain or subdomain, it will begin caching the pages requested by your website visitors and as soon as it has cached enough content, you will perceive a tremendously better site performance plus a lowered server load. With Varnish-dedicated memory starting at three gigabytes, you’ll be able to use the platform for workload distribution purposes even if you run a lot of websites on your dedicated server.
