Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, as it can increase the loading speed of any website, sometimes even by one hundred percent, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to reduce the overall load on the physical machine and to accelerate the access speed for the website visitors. Anytime a visitor accesses a page on a specific site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is sent as a reply. If the Varnish accelerator is activated, it caches the pages that the website visitor browses and if any of them is loaded once again, it’s delivered by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The increase in the performance is due to the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests tremendously quicker than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the website visitors. If any content is changed meanwhile, the cached web pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time someone attempts to open them.

We offer Varnish as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux website hosting package and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your account via the Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting 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 Internet sites that you wish to employ Varnish for and the second one, which comes in increments of 32 MB, indicates the total amount of data that the data caching platform can store at any given moment. Hepsia’s easy-to-use graphical interface will enable you to terminate or to reboot any instance, to view exhaustive logs or to erase the platform’s cache with just one mouse click. For optimal results, you can employ a dedicated IP for the sites that will use the caching platform. With Varnish, your Internet site will load considerably faster, meaning more pleased users and prospective clients.
