Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a web app accelerator that can improve the loading 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 in case the visitor loads it again. In this way, the browser request from the visitor is not handled by the web server and the page will load significantly faster, since the Varnish platform can deliver data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a much faster loading page, which leads to an immensely improved visitor experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the actual website, the data that Varnish saves in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will not end up seeing outdated information.

You can add it to your hosting account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages and you will get a truly user-friendly GUI, which will grant you full control over the data caching system.
