Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web accelerator tool that can boost the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading page, which means an immensely improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual site, the data that Varnish caches in its system memory is updated too, so the website visitors will not see outdated data.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your brand new account has been opened, as the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be assigned to Varnish the second your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload balancing software once your site has been published to the web. If you’re in need of more memory, you can get 32 megabytes at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine immediately. You can also increase the number of the sites that employ Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly linked to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you’ll enjoy more freedom. The Varnish caching platform will enormously decrease the load on the server caused by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening pages. You’ll be able to manage the Varnish caching platform without effort via your Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access controls. You will be able to start/terminate any of the instances that you’ve got, to delete the cache associated with any of your sites or to view system log files.
