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 for themselves. Contact us to find out how we can optimise your site and content.
