Over the last 18 months, we’ve made major investments in our web server. We’ve upgraded our virtual platform to a dedicated server and we have the ability to upscale this in the future to provide our clients with the latest and best hosting solution possible.
Discovery – The KCS Web Server
It's not just a High Spec Server that counts...
Having a high spec server is only part of having a fast website, website caching is one of the most beneficial technologies available. In short, it makes websites extremely fast, which leads to better SEO scores and increased user satisfaction.
The underlying idea behind caching is really very simple. Websites are generally viewed hundreds, thousands, or sometimes even millions of times per month. Normally, each time a browser requests a web page, the server has to do a bunch of complex (and time consuming) calculations. It retrieves the latest posts, generates the header and footer, finds your site’s sidebar widgets, and so on. However, in many cases, the result of all these calculations will be exactly the same. This is exactly what caching is, it remembers the final result instead of processing each request separately.
We spent time caching and optimising our own web site and the results can be seen on the right. Contact us to find out how we can optimise your site and content.
