Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches data for the sake of quicker response times. It is occasionally called an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and a browser. When a site visitor opens a specific web page, the content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server handles this browser request and delivers the required info. If Varnish is enabled for a certain site, it will cache the pages at the very first visit and in case the visitor visits a cached page once again, the content will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The boosted load speed is a result of the substantially faster response time that Varnish offers compared with any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the visitors will continue being served the exact same content again and again, as any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish saves in its system memory.

Varnish in Website Hosting

Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux website hosting and if you want to use it, you can add it to your shared web hosting account using the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. There are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you wish to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 32 MB, shows the total amount of content that the platform can cache at any particular moment. Hepsia’s time and effort saving graphical interface will permit you to discontinue or to reboot any instance, to check detailed logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load tremendously faster, meaning more satisfied site users and potential customers.

The default memory that the Varnish platform can use to cache content is 64 MB, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount of memory from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, in other words – the number of the websites that can use this platform simultaneously. Since these two features aren’t tied to each other, you can use a few websites with the default amount of memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for a single website. The Varnish caching platform works best when you set a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that utilize its power. Hepsia will provide you with a simple means of restarting any instance. On top of that, you’ll be able to delete the cached contents with only a click.

This amount is sufficient enough to boost the work of numerous Internet sites. It’ll take a little time for you to observe the results, as the Varnish platform caches the content that website visitors access, but soon after that you’ll notice the substantially less load on the virtual machine and the enhanced website load speed.
