Varnish is a web application accelerator, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately, because it can increase the loading speed of any Internet site, at times even by 100%, based on the content. This tool is occasionally referred to as a caching HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical server and to increase the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor loads a page on a specific Internet site, the browser request is handled by the web server and the requested content is served as a response. If Varnish is enabled, it caches the pages that the site visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded once more, it’s fetched by Varnish and not by the web server directly. The improvement in the overall performance comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests substantially faster than any web server, which leads to much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any content is updated in the meantime, the cached webpages will also be updated the next time somebody tries to open them.

The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not tied to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and vice versa. If you’ve got lots of content on a given website and you gain lots of site visitors, more memory will give you better results.

The Hepsia Control Panel will provide you with easy 1-click controls for turning off or restarting any instance, for deleting the cache for each site and for viewing exhaustive system logs.
