Varnish is a website accelerator platform, which caches data for faster response times. It is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and a web browser. When a visitor accesses a specific web page, the content is requested by the browser, and then the web server processes this request and sends back the required content. If Varnish is enabled for a website, it will cache its pages at the first request and in case the user opens a cached page for a second time, the information will be delivered by the accelerator platform instead of the server. The increased speed is an end result of the considerably faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared to any web server software. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the website visitors will continue seeing the exact same content again and again, since any update on any of the pages is reflected in the content that Varnish keeps in its memory.

The first one depends on the number of the websites that you want to use Varnish for, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 32 MB, pertains to the maximum amount of data that the platform can store at any given time. The Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface will allow you to stop or to restart any instance, to see comprehensive system logs or to get rid of the platform’s cache with just a click. For optimal results, you can use a dedicated IP for the websites that will use the platform.
