What is LiteSpeed Cache and How It Can Give Your Website a Boost?

Be honest, how many times have you clicked off a web page because it was taking too long to load?

Your site may have well-researched and helpful content, but after 20 seconds of a whole lot of nothing popping up, you’ve lost 80% of your audience.

Quit slow-poking around. Install LiteSpeed Cache to get your WordPress website running faster than ever.

What is LiteSpeed Cache?

LiteSpeed Cache is a server-side page cache built into the LiteSpeed Web Server that we deploy on all web hosting packages.

The Web Server and Cache products are developed by LiteSpeed Technologies.

What does the plugin do?

As the plugin is installed on your website, it knows the intricate details about your website and allows for a more tailored caching experience.

For example, it can provide different caching instructions for logged in users and also offer different cached versions between desktop and mobile experiences etc…

This information is then communicated with the Web Server to tell it how to cache, what to cache and for how long.

Why is it so good?

LiteSpeed Cache outperforms other popular caching plugins because it works at a web server level instead of just an application level.

This level of caching efficiency combined with an easy-to-use plugin results in an amazing balance between ease and performance.

Page caching saves time and resources, and it does so by storing the full content of dynamically-generated pages so that static copies may be served to the visitor.

A page cache allows the server to bypass the slow process of dynamic page creation and database queries altogether.

What else does LiteSpeed Cache do?

  • Automatic page caching to greatly improve site performance
  • Automatic purge of related pages based on certain events
  • Reduced resource consumption
  • Private cache for logged-in users
  • Separate caching of desktop and mobile views
  • Ability to schedule purge for specified URLs
  • Exclude from cache by URI, Category, Tag, Cookie, User Agent
  • CSS/JavaScript/HTML Minification
  • PageSpeed score optimisation
  • Plus much more!
