A Faster WordPress Site is Possible By Enabling the Varnish Cache Optimization: Cloudways Hosting Customers Can Now Benefit from this Technology
Cloudways hosting customers can benefit from an optimization for their WordPress site installations by enabling the newly-installed Varnish Cache. This is a reverse proxy engine that is categorized as an HTTP accelerator — by having it set up and enabled on a site it will greatly speed up the delivery of the contents. At the same time, it has two other distinct advantages — it will reduce the server load and still allow for load balancing to work.
It is open-source technology and will also keep the site online in case of backend issues. This main engine has a grace mode which allows for cached information on the side of the hosting company to be accessible even if it has expired and the webserver is not functioning properly. It works only with the HTTP protocol which is a disadvantage compared to other engines. Cloudways hosting has setup Varnish Cache and implemented it — customers of the company can follow the simple steps in order to enable the caching service.
