WordPress Caching

By default, your WordPress site will be using our nginx first reverse proxy to httpd / apache (running mod_lsapi) – this is incredibly performant by default, however, you are able to enable everything from full-page caching through to Nginx-only support for some of the most popular WordPress caching plugins.

Full Page Caching (powered by Redis)

Our full page cache allows you to serve your site or blog as though it were static/built-in HTML. This is by far the fastest type of cache and is served from RAM / Memory (therefore is incredibly efficient) – this is the perfect caching method for sites whereby the content is only updated infrequently, such as a static / brochure type site built in WordPress.

WordPress + WP Rocket (Recommended)

If you want to use the WP Rocket plugin, but benefit from the performance increase of using native Nginx then selecting this template will automatically load the Nginx directives (.htaccess alternatives) for your WordPress site. By selecting this template, we automatically enable the same features as provided by Rocket Nginx which is an Nginx set of directives designed to increase loading times for your WordPress website when using the WP Rocket plugin. The WP Rocket plugin is a commercial product and can be purchased here.

Drupal Caching

By default, your Drupal site will be using our nginx first reverse proxy to httpd / apache (running mod_lsapi) – this is incredibly performant by default, however, you are able to also enable…

Drupal Full Page Cache

The ‘Drupal Full Page Cache’ template allows your site to be cached automatically. The cache is built when the page is first hit and stored in Memory – from that point onwards the page will be served directly from the server cache.

Proxy Cache

Unlike the caching methods mentioned above, the proxy cache still allows full use of the .htaccess file and is therefore still reverse proxied to Litespeed PHP. Enabling Proxy Cache enables caching your static resources, such as images, CSS, JS into the server memory, and works in a similar way to the Cloudflare CDN. Your images, CSS, and JavaScript files will be cached unless you explicitly state no-cache headers.
