Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can accelerate the load speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending 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 when the visitor accesses it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the server and the web page will open significantly faster, as the Varnish platform can serve information many times faster than any server software. The end result is a significantly faster loading website, which leads to an improved visitor experience. If any of the cached web pages is updated on the live site, the info that Varnish caches in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old info.

Varnish in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites under a shared website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse via your Control Panel. The caching platform is offered as an upgrade with all our plans and you can select the number of the websites that will use it and the total storage space that will be used for the cached data. The two upgradeable features in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of system memory and they aren’t linked directly to each other, so you can choose if you want plenty of memory for a single large-size site or less memory for several smaller ones. You can unleash the full potential of Varnish in case the websites use a dedicated IP address. With the Control Panel, you can effortlessly start/reboot/terminate an instance, clear the cached contents individually for each site that uses the Varnish platform or check an exhaustive system log file.
