What Is PressCACHE™ and How Does It Work?
Last Updated -
PressCACHE™ is our caching mechanism used on our shared platform at Pagely and has 3 primary aspects:
- PressCACHE™ handles the caching of your site content (rendered HTML pages) to speed up delivery of your WordPress site. Settings are accessed directly via your WordPress admin screens where you may turn it on/off, or enable developer mode. There is really nothing else to do other than turn it on, and enjoy the speed.
- PressCACHE™ is also responsible for globally serving your content from the nearest location to your viewer. Use our PressDNS service to maximize PressCACHE™ effectiveness.
- PressCACHE™ also contains our PressARMOR security rules at each network edge location to keep your site secure, block bot attacks, and other Wide Application Firewall (WAF) type security measures.
If you know what a CDN is, you already understand how PressCACHE™ works. Content is cached at one or several of our POPs (Point of Presence). The next time a request is made for your site, the POP closest to you, delivers the cached page to the user. The overall effect is faster speeds to a global audience.
