BeastCache and CDN

We thoroughly cache your website data in order to increase loading speed.

A web cache system stores copies of documents passing through it; subsequent requests may be satisfied from the cache.

Website caching involves temporarily saving website files to reduce server lag.

What does that mean in practice?

Your website files are periodically sent from your main web server to our worldwide servers. These worldwide servers store only this cached version of the site. Users are served the cached website from the server that is nearer to them.

The caching and CDN systems both reduce server lag, and serve the website from a location that is physically nearer to the user, both of which massively increase website speed.

Our caching systems are not turned on automatically – you have can: (a) control which websites utilise the cache and CDN, (b) set which URLs should not be cached using the blacklist, and (c) manually refresh the cache at any point.

The cache is refreshed automatically when our systems detect major site changes.
