Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can improve the load 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 web server and the page will open tremendously faster, since the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The result will be a considerably faster loading website, which means a much-improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the content that Varnish keeps in its memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content.
Varnish in Cloud Hosting
We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud hosting package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your web hosting account through the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that you’d like to employ Varnish for, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any particular time. Hepsia’s time and effort saving interface will permit you to discontinue or to restart any instance, to see detailed logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just one click. For maximum results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your website will load tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied website visitors and prospective clients.
