Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web accelerator that can increase the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Whenever a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading website, which leads to an immensely improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the info that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors won’t see out-of-date data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Varnish’s potential and optimize your sites’ speed regardless of the shared web hosting package that you’ve selected and you can enable and set up the platform with a couple of mouse clicks through the easy-to-work-with interface offered by our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory. The latter comes in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can order more instances with less memory and vice versa. In case you have a lot of content on a certain website and you attract numerous visitors, more memory will give you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will use the Varnish caching platform. Hepsia will offer you simple 1-click buttons for shutting down or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for each site and for checking in-depth system logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Varnish data caching platform is included in the standard service set that you will acquire if you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account. You can activate it for any of your Internet sites via our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. The default amount of system memory that Varnish can use to cache data is 64 megabytes, but in case you decide that you need more, you can upgrade this amount from the Control Panel’s Upgrades section. You can also upgrade the Varnish instances, i.e. the number of the Internet sites that can use this platform simultaneously. Since these two features are not tied to each other, you can use a few Internet sites with the default memory or you can get more memory in increments of 32 MB and use all of it for one single Internet site. The Varnish platform works best if you get a dedicated IP for the websites that utilize its power. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you a simple means of rebooting any instance. Also, you’ll be able to delete the cached content with only one click of the mouse.

This is more than enough to optimize the performance of a handful of resource-demanding sites, so the better website loading speeds and the reduced load will be noticeable. The result may not be observable immediately, as the Varnish platform will require some time to cache the content that people browse, but shortly after you activate it, you will witness its full capacity.
