Varnish is a web accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker access. It is sometimes referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy too and it interacts between a web server and an Internet browser. When a website visitor opens a specific webpage, its content is requested by the web browser, and then the web server processes this browser request and returns the necessary info. If Varnish is activated for a certain website, it will cache its pages at the first visit and if the visitor opens a cached page once again, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the server. The improved load speed is a result of the considerably faster response time that Varnish offers as compared to any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the visitors will keep being served the exact same content over and over again, as any change on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its system memory.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated hosting services offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated account has been activated, since the data caching platform is available by default. 64 MB of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the moment your account is enabled, so you can make use of this workload balancing software as soon as you launch your site. If you need more system memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated server momentarily. You can also increase the number of the Internet sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly tied to the amount of memory that you use, which means that you will enjoy more versatility. The caching platform will greatly decrease the load on the server caused by your websites, so your visitors can enjoy fast-loading web pages. You will be able to manage Varnish with ease through the Hepsia Control Panel using quick-access buttons. You’ll be able to start/shut down any of the instances that you’ve got, to clear the cached data for any of your Internet sites or to check system log files.

The Varnish caching platform will need to work for a while as the users browse the site and once the website content has been cached, you’ll perceive the effect.
