Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator that can accelerate the load speed of a site by up to one thousand percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load substantially faster, since the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading page, which leads to a much-improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the content that Varnish saves in its memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated information.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites under a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel. The caching platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared plans and you can choose the number of the sites that will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of system memory and the number of instances and they are not linked directly to each other, so you can decide if you want a lot of memory for a single large-scale site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can make use of the full potential of Varnish if the sites use a dedicated IP. Using the hosting Control Panel, you can easily start/reboot/terminate an instance, clear the cached data individually for each site that employs Varnish or see an exhaustive log.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you need the most powerful web hosting solution and you purchase one of the dedicated servers that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish caching platform to boost the overall performance of your websites at no extra cost as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Its intuitive GUI will enable you to keep an eye on system processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click. The smallest amount of system memory that the caching platform can employ to cache site content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for an immense number of traffic-consuming Internet sites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle an immense system load while your website visitors are enjoying a smooth browsing experience. Since your server will come with several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to use Varnish’s full potential.
