Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can boost the speed of a website by up to 1000 percent, depending on the content itself. Anytime 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 loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading website, which means an immensely improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached pages is updated on the live Internet site, the content that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old information.
Varnish in Cloud Website Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia Control Panel. There’re two different things that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one depends on the number of the sites that you want to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s simple-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to turn off or to restart any instance, to check comprehensive logs or to clear the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For maximum results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load substantially faster, meaning more pleased site users and prospective customers.
