Learn about Varnish, understand more details on web accelerators and see precisely what it is that they do.
Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can increase the load speed of a site by up to 1000%, based on the content itself. Each time a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load significantly faster, as the Varnish caching platform can serve information many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading page, which leads to a greatly improved browsing experience. If any of the cached webpages is updated on the live site, the data that Varnish stores in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated information.
Varnish in Shared Website Hosting
Our company offers Varnish as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared website hosting
and if you wish to use it, you can add it to your website hosting account using the Upgrades section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. There are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one pertains to the number of the Internet sites that you would like to employ Varnish for and the second one, which is offered in increments of 32 megabytes, refers to the maximum amount of content that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI will enable you to delete or to reboot any instance, to check detailed logs or to delete the platform’s cache with just one click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP address for the Internet sites that will use the platform. With Varnish, your site will open considerably faster, meaning more happy users and prospective customers.
