Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, because it can increase the load speed of any website, at times even by 100%, based on the content. This tool is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy too and is used to lower the overall load on the physical machine and to accelerate the access speed for the site visitors. Whenever a visitor loads a page on a certain site, the web browser request is processed by the web server and the requested information is sent as a reply. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the website visitor opens and if any of them is opened again, it is served by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The performance improvement comes from the fact that the accelerator processes the web requests considerably faster than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the site visitors. If any data is modified meanwhile, the cached pages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody opens them.
Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use Varnish’s potential and accelerate the speed of your websites irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you have picked and you can enable and configure the platform with several clicks using the simple-to-use interface offered by our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use the Varnish caching platform, in other words – the number of instances, and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 MB and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can add more instances with less memory and the other way around. In case you have plenty of content on a specific site and you draw numerous site visitors, more memory will give you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP address for the websites that will use the Varnish caching platform. The Hepsia Control Panel will offer you easy 1-click controls for discontinuing or restarting any instance, for clearing the cache for any website and for checking comprehensive system logs.

Hepsia will enable you to restart or to disable any instance, to check the system log file associated with it or to delete the cached content using one-click buttons.
