Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web application accelerator tool that can increase the load speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on the content itself. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor opens it again. In this way, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will open tremendously faster, as the Varnish platform can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The end result is a considerably faster loading page, which means an enormously improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the live website, the data that Varnish keeps in its system memory is updated as well, so the site visitors won’t see old info.

The caching platform is offered as an upgrade with all our shared plans and you can choose how many sites will use it and the total amount of system memory that will be used for the cached data. The two features that can be upgraded in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section are the amount of memory and the number of instances and they’re not directly linked to each other, so you can choose whether you need lots of memory for one single large-size site or less memory for several smaller ones.
